Miller’s Monday Morning Message
presented by ACM Consulting Inc.
Andrew Miller on operational excellence, strategy, life balance and everything in between
Toronto – May 11, 2015
In Alberta this week, the NDP won a landslide victory, taking a majority government and knocking the PCs out of power after more than 40 years. This surprised most people. Not just that the NDP won, but that it was such a decisive margin.
I was speaking with a colleague the other day and he put it perfectly, “Contractors and trades and many other blue collar workers have been pouring into Alberta for years to take advantage of great employment opportunities. And the oil and gas industry is suffering. It shouldn’t take a genius to figure out that a political party that caters to blue collar workers might actually win the election.”
Even though hindsight is 20/20, there were many signs that the NDP would have a chance to take over power in Alberta. We just didn’t put them all together and come to a logical conclusion.
Are there any trends in your industry that you are missing and could have a disruptive effect on your organization’s success?
