Get Your Business In Tune
Posted on December 8, 2011
Do you ever feel that running your business is a bit like conducting an orchestra?
Trying to get different teams performing in unison can be a constant challenge. Whilst many departments appear to function independently, they all play a fundamental role; equally relying on each other to deliver business harmony.
It’s vital to master the complete running of your business to make sure it remains on song – creating a perfect symphony rather than operating in silos. This ethos is becoming ever more important as the global economic woes show little sign of easing.
Listening to news bulletins was a pretty painful experience as the lights went out on 2011 with economic doom and gloom continuing to grab the headlines. Only the most optimistic observer will claim it’s going to be anything but a long road back to prosperity but you can still make money in these difficult trading times. 2012 is hardly likely to set the world on fire, but with the Olympics on the horizon it should give the whole country a much needed tonic – and generate plenty of additional revenue along the way as London in particular becomes the sporting capital of the world.
There’s no doubt we could all make a lot more money if things were better but we are where we are and we need to make the most of it. In many ways, the bleaker the economic picture, the more essential it is to have your orchestra performing to its full potential – there’s no room for any off key notes.
Today, more than ever, you’ve got to be in tune to succeed. With another New Year upon us, how many people are ready to ‘play’ their part?
