What are you going to do in 2015 that’s going to help drive even better results
for your customers, your business and for you?
Madness is always doing what we always did, and expecting different results,
let alone better results.
If you want to achieve different results, better results, then you’re going to
have to do something different, something better, otherwise the results are
going to remain the same, and in our ever changing world, staying the same
is the same as going backwards.
When I first set out to write a new book about my FAST strategy for leaders, I
contacted Tammy because I know that she has been working with leaders for
the past decade and I wanted to get her opinion on FAST. She loved it, and
told me it could be bigger than Good to Great, and that she thought that
corporate leaders would love it too.
FAST is an approach I have defined based on over 20 years experience of
turning round failing projects, underperforming departments, and FAST works
because it eliminates many of the common causes of failure.
FAST is easy to understand, pragmatic and gets our teams engaged in doing
the right job, which then their increases effectiveness. Once we have them
doing the right job, then we can then focus on getting them to do a good job,
one which will increase their over all efficiency.
Too often people focus on efficiency first, but if our teams are working on the
wrong things it doesn’t matter how efficient they are, all this good effort is just
wasted. It’s like tires spinning in the mud, it doesn’t matter how fast they spin,
if there is no traction and then there is no real progress.
By having our teams doing the right job, and a good job FAST ensure that we
are both effective and efficient, and this is a recipe for excellent results.
