Why is "systems thinking" so rare? Anyone who stops and thinks about most any subject matter for more than about five minutes will appreciate the interconnectedness of the various components of any entity. Like a chain link fence or a decorative row of landscaping rocks, the whole is made up of the pieces parts... I met two gentlemen yesterday during the evolution of Rhino Island Media and came away with one thought (and frankly, it is the most important thought): they are the "right" people, as Jim Collins might remark. At one point in the conversation, one gentleman pointed out how we had dropped our vantage point during the discussion into the realm of "too much detail" when the fifty thousand foot view had not yet been properly framed. Shows wisdom beyond his years! At another point, the other gentleman suggested a key connector might be consulted for a variety of reasons, chief among them: to increase our rate of progress. How refreshing! He understands my focus: Throughput! Every wonder why your projects are not going better (faster, more effective, etc.)? Get the right people on board It makes connecting the dots not only easier, but much more rewarding! Remember (and never forget!): Life is too short to waste it on the wrong people. -ski P.S. Need help finding the right people? Give me a call. ---- Jeff 'SKI' Kinsey, Jonah Strategy, Tactics & Execution Dover, OH | Hilton Head Island, SC | Las Vegas, NV Cell: +1 330.432.3533 tag: SKI on Recruiting ©2008 Throughput.us LLC.
