Breaking Deadlock: A Call to Action!


Suppose the majority of the processes are manual at my business. The business systems are convoluted. My whole executive team is too busy and cannot undertake any business improvement work. I cannot invest in business improvement and seek outside help. Then, I am at the mercy of investors, government grants, or volunteers to rescue my business from deadlock.

It is not okay to be in such a state. As an executive, I must find a way out of this mess. The trick is to list all constraints (budget, internal resource time, and knowledge) and identify resources to invest in a coordinated way to break the deadlock. It is much easier to state than do. But one must do it because, otherwise, there is unlikely to have a business.
