One of the challenges I see in a lot of organizations is that as they grow, they don’t do a very good job of on boarding their project based tasks into their operations.
Another thing I see a lot, is a failure to develop and mentor team members, managers, and staff on some of the roles and procedures that will help continue the long term growth of an organization.
If you are in charge of a department or an organization, the challenge is really ongoing development and growth. As we keep hearing in the news about an improving economy, we still see companies that are hoarding cash, cutting back on training and benefits, and sticking their head’s in the sand about the nature of globalized business.
Here is the key point, if you are going to do business in a globalized world, you can’t cut, hide, or scam your way to growth…these things may goose your stock in the short run, but in the long run…you are going to be done for.
