The secret to success is system leadership by the LEADERSHIP

The Innovation Engineering movement defines a system as Dr. Deming did, “two or more independent parts with a common aim.”  In the case of an organization this means two or more departments that are working together towards the common aim of the organization as a whole.ThinkstockPhotos-456110931
Sadly, the average organization realizes “less than the sum of their parts” - together they realize less than what each department delivers independently.  This is because the departments first priority is on delivering their departmental metrics no matter what the consequences are to other departments or the organization as a whole.

Why don't my employees want to do anything?

Human resources is one of our most valuable tools in todayÕs business world but leveraging that tool to itÕs fullest potential can seem like an impossible task. 

Life is short - do something that matters today!

Late last night I read this quote

Jeff Bezos - on being bold

11/09/2015

“One of my jobs is to encourage people to be bold.  It’s incredibly hard.  Experiments are, by their very nature, prone to failure. A few big successes compensate for dozens and dozens of things that didn’t work.  Bold Bets - Amazon Web Services, Kindle, Amazon Prime, our third-party seller business - all of those things are examples of bold bets that did work, and they pay for a lot of experiments.  
I’ve made billions of dollars of failures.  You might remember pets.com or kosmo.com.  It was like getting a root canal with no anesthesia.  None of this things are fun.  But they also don’t matter.
