Slow Is Fast – Creating Value

creating value I’ve noticed that often fire, ready, aim is the order we do things in at our companies.  Instead, if we spent more time thinking about what we want to do we would have more success that would ultimately come faster.

We often start with what it is that we want to do.  The first thing that pops into our head is what we end up doing.  If instead we were to spend more time defining what, we might make better decisions that helps us move faster in the end.

Installing A Suggestion Program – Start With Small Ideas

Is There Such A Thing As A No Brainer? – Enterprise Value

no-brainerWe’ve all heard the term, “it’s a no brainer.”  I guess this means the decision is so easy, that you just don’t have to think about it.
