On the journey to the Future not only needs bright minds, but also light luggage, because the markets, like the rabbits, are always hitting new ground. For number games, budgeting excesses and rigid adherence to Regulate there is no time. Norms only produce mediocrity. And ISO noise creates isomorphism.


Change structures, not people!

“Change structures and don't People. Smart people don't stand a chance in stupid organizations." That's what leadership expert Reinhard K. Sprenger said.

That is why, first of all, the bleached ballast has to go overboard from old businesdays: traditions that have never been questioned, sacred cows, which no one wanted to slaughter, management modes already wearing a rusty patina. With the weapons of yesterday, the battles of tomorrow are now not to be won.

Traditions about board!

Standards cause mediocrity

And standards only cause standard services - and thus boring mediocrity. You give planning security? A contradiction in itself! What the Company encountered in the market today is permanent provisionality.

The only certainty is that plan and reality are already drifting apart on the second day of the new fiscal year. And what does a good manager do then? He does not follow reality but the plan. That is absurd!

When a manual becomes a code of law, they are Employees mainly concerned with meticulously following the predetermined procedures, regardless of whether they useful or are pointless.

Guardian of the prescription collection

And their superiors understand themselves as guardians of the regulations collection. Their compliance is strictly monitored. Deviations are punished with all harshness. And every suggestion for improvement becomes an attempted standard offense.

An evolutionary standstill is thus pre-programmed. Lack of initiative and conformity. From diversity of opinion becomes simplicity, which, decoupled from reality, ultimately also makes simple decisions.

However, employees only reveal their thoughts if they believe they will Esteem experience.

And when they know that mistakes are not a broken leg. Because mistakes are the price of evolution and Innovation. Anyone who tries something new must also be allowed to fail. Making mistakes means: to practiceto learn to win.
