Opening up the Organization


  • Make your employees aware of every factor that could have a bearing on company success.
  • Make your employees understand how much it costs to run the company. They should know your financial goals.
  • Always remain willing to change the ways you do business if employees recommend it.
  • You should be willing to change the structure of the company in order to increase employee participation.
  • If your people disagree with your suggestions, grant them time and resources to demonstrate an alternative.
  • You should be willing to be proven wrong by those who work for you.
  • Make a point to be available to employees beyond telling them “my door is always open.”
  • Regardless of whether you can afford to give regular raises, establish methods of employee recognition and reward.
  • Methods for reward and recognition need to be designed by and are respected by the employees themselves.

Focusing Operations


At the heart of every organization are the operations that actually make goods and provide services. To put it simply, the operations describe what the organization does. When you talk about an organization’s performance, you are describing how well it does its operations. To improve performance, you have to improve the operations. This seems obvious, but managers often ignore this simple truth and try to find quick fixes that don’t involve any effort.

You can do great deals with the finances, spend a fortune on marketing, have the best working conditions, use the latest technology, but if your operations are no good you might as well shut the door and go home. The only real way of improving the performance of your organization is by doing the operations better.
