To stay on top, organizations must always be asking themselves:
- Is our product as good as it could be? And, if the answer is no…they make it better.
- Is our organization as effective as it could be? And, if it’s not, they work to address ineffectiveness wherever it is found.
- Are there new opportunities available to us? And, if there are, they figure out how to take seize those opportunities.
Employees in successful organizations aren’t just in a race with the competition…they are in a race with themselves. A race to achieve the best that is within them.
The insightful animated video Race Without a Finish Line is great for showing why all organizations should strive for continuous improvement. Viewers learn how to better accept change and innovation, how cohesive teamwork and employee participation leads to better overall customer satisfaction, and why it is imperative to always want to do better. Included is a reminder that the old way of managing (characterized by top-heavy management giving orders and employees following those orders without question) is not likely to succeed in today’s climate. Each employee needs to be involved and empowered.
