One of the Aldridge Kerr Team commented that most folks (and organizations) do not intentionally allow for inefficiencies or ineffectiveness. This is true. But, the reverse is also true: in order for any organization to build a strong, sustainability operation, they must be intentional. Building sustainability is a must for operational effectiveness.
Here are some hints for being intentional around sustainability:
- Know your strengths as well as your areas of opportunity for change
- Define what will create massive change most quickly – it is often a “quick fix” that can be monumental
- Realize that sustainability requires an ongoing effort of continuous improvement
- Be open to new and different ideas; change can be good
