Want to know what to do to make your strategy actually happen? Want to know how to accelerate the pace of delivery and growth in your business?
I think this quote from Michael Bloomberg’s autobiography, Bloomberg by Bloomberg, in which he describes how his business beats its competitors and drives its success, is one of the best places to start.
“We made mistakes of course. Most of them were omissions we didn’t think of when we originally wrote the software. We do the same today. While our competitors are still sucking their thumbs trying to make the design perfect, we’re already on prototype version N0. 5. By the time our rivals are ready with wires and screws, we are on version No. 10. It gets back to planning versus action. We act from day one; others plan how to plan – for months.”
How does your business compare to this description?
