PROCESS – VS – RESULTS

imageimageimageimage

 

A problem for governments and businesses alike is non-productive work, or busy work. Sweat is often confused with productivity. A cluttered desk, long hours, even dedication can be confused with results. We devote a major focus in the book to process vs results. Today my research yielded a startling new example of process (non-productive work)  robbing a business of productivity and therefore the ability fairly care for employees and customers alike. I have no way of putting a full measure to how much human effort is consumed in process that  is of no real value. Waste profits no one!

Simple vs Easy

Ronald Reagan said, “They say we offer simple answers to complex problems. Well, perhaps there is a simple answer – not an easy answer but simple.”  I love problem solving. The method I use, is to reduce a problem to it’s simplest form. We do that with our teaching metaphors in the book. This method makes the answer clear and usually SIMPLE but not EASY.  My observations of management  today is there are way to many looking for EASY.  Could it be that SIMPLE?
