Miller’s Monday Morning Message
presented by ACM Consulting Inc.
Andrew Miller on operational excellence, strategy, life balance and everything in between
Toronto – April 21, 2014
During the Jewish holiday of Passover, it is customary for many Jews to stop eating bread products during the eight-day holiday to remember the suffering of our ancestors as they left Egypt. What’s interesting is how each family decides what they will eat and what they won’t eat. Is rice permitted? What about matzo bagels? Or corn? It’s not about what you eat or don’t eat, it’s about deciding as a family and having the discipline to follow that diet for eight days.
Performance excellence for an organization is no different. Excellence means something different to each organization. The important step is defining that excellence for your organization, determining the right steps to follow in order to achieve it, and then having the discipline to follow those steps. I often help the companies I work with to improve their ability to execute on strategy, which starts with determining the future vision (defining what excellence means to you), creating the road map to get there, and having the discipline to follow that road map.
What’s causing your organization to pass over the discipline required to achieve excellence?
