Lead, Follow or Get Out Of the Way!!

This week’s Issue | 28/10/2019

As a Leader your thoughts are split between Strategic and Tactile thinking.  Indeed the majority of your time should be spent towards Strategic thinking … how to grow the business, development and introduction of new products or the expansion into new markets.  But Tactile thinking is also very important to insure that your processes are delivering your product or service in a predictable manner satisfying customer requirements.  Unfortunately most Lean Practitioners focus on methodologies that will improve processes when the should be going to the next step of developing your organizational infrastructure that will allow you more time for Strategic thinking while the methodologies operate as “Distributed Accountability”.  Distributed Accountability means that you have designed and implemented your organizational infrastructure to insure predictable outcomes with minimal daily leadership involvement.  Hence my thoughts on … Lead, Follow or Get Out Of the Way!!
