Every organization begins with a dream and a promise; to be the best, to lead the way, to become the standard… But somehow, as time goes by, the dream gets fuzzy and the promise is compromised. Tradeoffs, unanticipated events, and “market realities” compete for attention and it no longer seems possible to achieve the level of performance originally intended. The “edge” has gone off the organization and things just don’t seem to work the way they used to (or the way initially hoped). Would you like to Restore the Edge? Would you like to reduce operating costs, improve time to market, enhance customer relations, increase market share, and/or improve profitability? Do you want to restore the enthusiasm and the belief within the organization that the original dream and promise are possible? Are you interested in improving your organization’s performance and implementing lasting change?
You’ve heard all the hype before, as each management fad and “tool” came and went; Organizational Development, Team Building, Total Quality Management, Re-engineering, LEAN, Six Sigma, and so on. Many of these produced improvements in selected areas; some long-term, many more temporary. But none of them created the lasting change needed to Restore the Edge.
