Running an SBE asks everything of you—overtime, working weekends, constant deadlines—but maybe the biggest thing it asks for is never-ending patience. Patience to rethink and re-examine procedures and practices over and over again to make sure complacency and ineffectiveness isn’t setting in.
Here are 4 things you can do to make reevaluation a part of your company:
- Use collective experience from your team combined with the latest research to form new ideas on organization diagnosis. By examining the latest peer-reviewed organization and leadership journals, we are able to apply evidence-based research ideas directly to practical problems.
- Experience trumps education every time. We use proven business models to examine the culture and science of an organization. However, most if not all of the existing models lean toward quantitative research. We use these models plus the human word (qualitative research) to align culture and science within the organization. Numbers are easy to manipulate – the human word is not so easy to bend.
- We create efficiencies by using the work of respected people in our field. By gaining permission to use existing surveys, models, and tools, we are able to add to the existing knowledge base while extending research with new ideas.
- Practically, OrgScienceSM meets bi-weekly specifically to brainstorm with our team. In addition, we connect constantly with a brilliant board of advisors and ask, “What can we do for our community?” each time.
