How long would it take for you to organise a conversation to save your company?
Working out loud, social business, flat management structures, autonomy and many other practices enable your disruptive competitors to share information, debate issues and make decisions quickly. Your competitors will discuss and decide today.
If it will take you at least a week, a fortnight or even a month to send emails asking for a meeting, arrange the meeting in diaries and circulate the papers, you will be behind on every cycle of decision making.
Speed isn’t everything. Many bad decisions have been made in haste. However the effects of slow decision making accumulate.
The most urgent conversation in business is how to discuss what needs to be discussed today.
