If you want to plan a route to a new destination, you must know where you are first. Perhaps this fundamental point is not as obvious to corporate management. Experts estimate that 70% of change initiatives fail.

John Michel's curator insight, October 28, 2013 8:38 AM

Truth-telling is all about making it safe to have the conversations most people don’t believe they are allowed to have. It starts by embracing difficult realities with the same excitement and enthusiasm that you have for strengths and accomplishments.

Has the drive for efficiency through cost cutting gone too far?

Has the drive for efficiency through cost cutting gone too far? | Business change | Scoop.it

The drive for efficiency has gone too far in my estimation.

“But efficiency is always good,” you might protest. True, productivity gains increase incremental profits all else equal.

But “all else equal” rarely holds true in practice. Therefore, like all good things pushed too far, gains from incremental efficiency initiatives may not be worth the price paid to secure them.

How to Handle 8 Challenging Customer Service Scenarios | Help Scout | Business change | Scoop.it
Plans are worthless, but planning is everything.”–President Dwight D. Eisenhower In the world of customer service, many would

argue that pure “scripts” are the antithesis of great service.

However, given the variable nature of interacting with customers, it’s easy to see how support champs can certainly benefit from some forward thinking in dealing with tough scenarios.
