Truth be told, there are only three types of organisations that exist today. They include:
The main difference between these three types of organisations is their ability to adapt to change. It’s really a very simple concept.
An organisation that has the power to make things happen is proactive. They study market trends, hire competant people, and are generally a couple steps ahead of the game at all times.
Those who simply watch things happen around them react, but they react too late. They’re always behind the 8 ball hoping to catch up to the competition.
The organisations left wondering what happened generally never catch up. Their performances are disappointing, their sales are usually low, and they never seem to have an original idea of their own.
The key to being like that first organisation is to remain open minded and ready to change at all times. The market, economy, and tastes of the public are always evolving. You have to be ready and willing to keep up with popular trends if you want to stay in the public spotlight. Doing so may mean making changes to your staff, procedures, or policies but in the end you’ll find taht this type of approach is a surefire way to guarantee success!
