Andrew Miller on operational excellence, strategy, life balance and everything in between

Toronto – January 4, 2016

I recently delivered a teleconference on prioritization, but the main focus was finding your ONE priority. Many organizations struggle with prioritization because everything becomes a priority for them. They don’t make decisions about which initiatives or ideas are more important than others. In order to find your one priority, you need yo ask yourself two questions:

  1. What is your organization’s ideal future state?
  2. What is the fastest and most effective way to achieve that future state?

The responses to those questions informs the decisions that you make.

Once you have identified your one priority, everything your organization does should align with that one priority. As other initiatives or ideas come up, you then ask yourself another question:

Will these new initiatives help my organization achieve its ideal future state more rapidly or effectively?

If the answer is ‘Yes,” then you need to consider other factors and possibly identify your new one priority.

If ‘No,” then you should move on.

Identifying your one priority is about providing your organization with a laser focus on how to best achieve dramatic results. I’m guessing that is better than the way you currently operate, piling one priority on top of another.
