You Need to Implement

March 29, 2017 // R. Shawn McBride // No Comments »

We’re living in a world of ideas. It’s a knowledge-based economy. There’s no doubt that the key to success these days is having great thoughts. But there’s another step beyond that and it’s the implementation, making sure things get into place to do what needs to be done. It’s wonderful to have thoughts and ideas, but you need to have an implementation. You need to have ways to make things happen.

What’s the process with your team? Do you have a way to take great thoughts and put them into action? How do you evolve your organization over time?

I think the answer is a little bit different for every company. You need to have flexibility, freedom, and you need to know that we’re going to implement things when there are new ideas. You need a process, to transfer thoughts through to approval and then implementation. Just having thoughts adds no value to your business. Having thoughts that turn into action, can make all the difference. You need to have a way to implement them. We’ve talked in prior blogs (…llow-your-growth/) about how it makes sense to implement massive changes in a scaled fashion, a piece at a time so that each change can get implemented, tested, and then rolled out to bigger and bigger platforms.

Regardless of what’s going on in your business, you need to think in terms of implementation. Innovation is key. We’re in a changing world, and we all must get behind change. But we also need to get behind implementation to make things really happen.
