Reboot


When is it time to do a hard reset? Are the patches, fixes, workarounds, subpar performance, still cutting it? If not, then it is past due. This applies to all aspects of your business. Offices, hardware, software, business processes, people.

Simple question. Does it work? If the answer is no, then we have an easy starting point. If yes, then we need to know if it works the way you want it to, and is the way you want it to work optimal? My guess is it isn’t. So we have a big task ahead of us.

Review our processes, iron out the bugs, and implement. This may be a shock, but remapping your processes should not be a secret. Involve your staff and have a re-launch party. Generate some excitement about making positive changes in your business and encourage this behavior in others.

Sometimes task manager works, but sometimes it takes a reboot.
