Random Thoughts

I had a little time to think more about the systems approach. There are so many intricacies within a complex system that must be considered. In current professional role, I have been fortunate to experience a more in-depth relationship with the inner-workings of several institutions. It's a perspective that is rare to experience for many reasons. In any case, I believe I now have a much better understanding of how to initiate meaningful change. Here are some rules:


  1. Fix the infrastructure to accommodate scale, direction, and innovation
  2. Fix the structure to leverage the skill-sets relevant to advancement
  3. Refine policies  - update and modify
  4. Test the existing products/services against the new system
  5. Refine products/services - update and modify
  6. Build productive capacity for innovation and advancement
  7. Set clear targets (margins, demand, etc.) for successful innovations
  8. Streamline and automate data and reporting systems
