Achieving Business Balance

Print Friendly

ImageOperating a business successfully entails the constant maintenance of a balancing act between competing influences.

Establishing and subsequently maintaining the alignment with a defined business strategy requires a real understanding of the difference between what is wanted and what is actually needed.

Understanding the motivations driving wants as compared to the requirements driving needs provides a means to moderate the aspirations defined within a business vision with that of the reality as affected by either the capability to deliver or financial considerations.

Before making any decision affecting the business ask the questions:

  • Why should this be done?
  • What is the expected outcome?
  • In making the decision will the business be positioned to be in a better place?

Questioning decisions before being made is one way of maintaining balance.
