Great companies are founded on principles, standards and goals; empowering the organization to act with common purpose.” ¬†Daniel R. Scoggin

Dynamic companies are faced with constant change as they grow and their markets develop. This can cause confusion in an organization because the rules and systems must change to keep pace. A well managed company has core values and principles that do not change, providing the stability and direction that eliminates confusion. Management’s job is to develop and share these values and principles with the ¬†organization, empowering it to act and yes, break the rules if necessary to achieve and maintain those core values and principles.

Principles trump rules! Establishing and sharing those principles empowers the organization to act.
