Building on Experience
Thinking about this month’s newsletter, I considered titling it
“Building on Success”. But despite the marketing and media
hype, good companies, build on experiences both good and bad,
learn from them, and repeat the successful formulas, and are
careful to avoid repeating the mistakes. In short, finding the
right consultants to hire for a project isn’t about finding
those with the proverbial midas touch, but rather in finding
those who understand your organization, have the patience to
work closely with you, and the perseverence to follow
through to success.
Aligning the right people & resources
Facilitating communication can often be the greatest challenge in
any consulting engagement. Organizations, even smaller ones,
often have their own unofficial hierarchy of how things get done.
Consultants are brought in, not just when the right expertise
can’t be found in-house, but also when the expertise already there
isn’t solving the right problems. So inevitably these cases require
cutting accross the usual channels, to put the right people
together with the right resources.
This can come in the form of training, facilitating, and
coordinating these new relationships that foster the organization
to solve it’s own problems.
Turning ambitious strategies into successful ones
So what’s next? Ambitious and lofty strategies can often remain
out of reach until the right workflow is established. If that’s
not happening right away with your technology rollout, don’t
let the problem languish. Identify it, and resolve to
straighten it out.
