Business Innovator = Focus = Performance 

Focus is to performance what fuel is to fire!  Unfortunately, it's easy to lose focus in business because of the numerous seemingly important distractions that bombard us daily.  But remember, anything that divides our attention, weakens our focus and our performance.  Focus is singleness of purpose and undivided attention.  So, the biggest difficulty in attaining high performance comes from the inability to determine what single element needs the undivided attention of the [...] ...

Six ways to identify a”Free" Addict

Are your products and services competing with the feel-good feeling of free?  I don't know about you, but I have to be really careful about giving away free stuff, because free stuff really ain't free!  Free stuff always has a cost.  Just remember, there are people out there who just love chasing the feeling they get from something free.  For them, “free” is not the gateway drug to becoming a paying customer, for them “free” is the product they are lo [...] ...

Hidden from Plain Sight

Big breakthroughs don't always come from some brand-new and original idea.  Sometimes, the big solution is right in front of us in plain sight but we ignore it thinking it's too simple and too obvious.  But really, most of the time the answer is not the biggest part of the solution, it’s the disciplined execution that is critical!  Things that are easy to do are easy not to do!  I for one would prefer a complicated answer with less discipline but dogged, persistence an [...] ...

One Percent Champion

Pat Riley the brilliant and wildly successful NBA coach once designed a one percent performance goal for his Los Angeles Lakers team during his 1986-87 season.  He and his coaching staff identified five key areas of performance for each player to improve buy a measly one percent. Imagine that, just one percent, one percent doesn't seem like it would make a dent in anything and it certainly doesn’t seem like too much to ask of anyone!  But when you think about what can happen whe [...] ...

Machines Don’t Complain….Enough!

Office politics, infighting, turf wars, they can take up more time and energy than the actual work in the work place!  Humans have lots of variables, sometimes we have good days and sometimes not, sometimes we work smart and are very productive other days we barely think at all.  These are all reasons that replacing humans with machines can seem so appealing.  Machines don't complain they do their work no matter what's going on around them and if you don't like them you can throw [...] ...

Don't Outsource your Resource!

"People are your most valuable resource."  True or false??  That quote can be found in just about every business text book in print.  The problem is, not everyone in business believes it and unfortunately, in many cases there is good reason they don’t.  Some managers have even expressed the view that we would be better off if we could replace all workers with machines.  Ouch!  I don't think machines are the answer but if we really get candid it would read &ld [...] ...

Trust Building Time Warp

Jack Welch of General Electric fame says Truth and Trust are the two most important words in business.  Mr. Welch has a powerful point, because all business has elements of risk and possibly the biggest risk is in the relationships.  Businesses that focus on building trust and truth into their relationships (both within the company and without) will eliminate a large portion of the risks and uncertainty of doing business.  So, the question becomes, what can we all do to bring tho [...] ...

Home Building Innovation or Motivation?

Thanks to all of you who gave feedback on the “Housing Identity Crisis” post last week!!  The feedback included:This is good information but doesn’t seem like affordability is a very big problem yet.The way trades are paid should incentivized them to innovate. It is the automation that gives auto manufacturing such an enormous advantage. With all the human pieces from so many different skills it is harder to innovate. ​Here is some thought [...] ...

Housing Identity Crisis,  Can We Afford to Innovate?

Even though the home building industry is ripe for disruptive innovation (BIG not incremental reductions in cycle times and costs) it might be that the industry cannot afford to innovate.    The problem with the housing market (one of them) is a confusion of identity.  Just like a bank balance sheet where an entry can be both an asset and a liability, a house has the same two opposing identities.  For most people their house is their biggest investment (asset) and like [...] ...

Innovating on the Fringes

It’s not your mainstream customers that test your processes and help you innovate but those that operate on the fringes of your market.  They are the ones that have the new ideas and requirements that will force you to come up with better products and more efficient processes!  (If you’re smart enough not to ignore them.)    Have you ever noticed how much money large corporations waste?  It seems like their operations are to big to notice the little thi [...] ...
