Thanks to Jim Collins, everyone wants to go from good to great. Ask they why and they’ll tell you they don’t know; they just have to go from good to great. When I hear this, I always think this will be another flavor of the month program, unless of course Collins releases a new book. Then the mantra will change.
If you want to go from good to great, you have to be able to define what great looks like for your organization. Then you have to be willing to take a look at where you really are so you can make a realistic plan to get to where you want to go. As you prepare for business success in 2013, consider implementing one or two programs that will move your company forward a mile, rather than an inch. Be willing to accept that 2013 may be the year you go from okay to good. But hey, that sure beats going in the opposite direction.
