So you successfully steered your business through the recession—a significant achievement which no doubt took a lot of courage, determination and energy, and probably involved a fair amount of pain.
You learned a great deal. You established a tight grip. You had good governance.
You’re going to keep these disciplines going. (We may not be out of recession yet, so that’s wise.)
You might need something different now, or perhaps more accurately, something else as well.
You might need some innovation and change if you’re not going to be left behind by more adaptable organisations. And if you need some innovation, you might need to loosen up. You might need to create some freedom.
You might need to find a way to balance disorder and order.
Do you know how to do that?
