Miller’s Monday Morning Message
presented by ACM Consulting Inc.
Andrew Miller on operational excellence, strategy, life balance and everything in between
Toronto – November 3, 2014
I recently finished Chris Hadfield’s, An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth. Aside from being a very entertaining book, one of the key messages for me was that sometimes we need to be away from something in order to appreciate it.
It made me think about all of the executives who don’t get a chance to be “away” from their organizations in order to identify where the opportunities lie. They aren’t able to remove themselves from the day to day operations of the business in order to take a broader view.
It’s necessary to question why things are done a certain way, how a certain technology is used, or why a specific policy exists. But it’s difficult to ask those questions without the proper perspective. One that allows for a total view of the organization and where the executive wants to take it.
Since we don’t all have the luxury of traveling into space to gain that proper perspective, where do you go to take a bird’s eye view of your organization?
