Dimensions of change August 2, 2006

Posted by Joey Valdez in Ideas!, Questions.

Inside the BoxWhat are some of the more difficult questions organizations face? There are some – like how to balance productivity and creativity, how to encourage more conversations, or how to make measuring performance less of a burden – that can be solved by reallocating resources or by changing the system’s environmental parameters. The toughest ones deal with how to make strategic tradeoffs, how to lead effectively, and how to understand and predict users’ needs, because these are all influenced directly by forces outside the organization. Answers to these questions have a direct connection with the external aspects of an organization—both perceived and real.

Of course, experience also plays a key role in the search for answers, and making big mistakes often provides the greatest opportunity for learning.
