A lot has been written about the importance of innovation as it relates to product success. Innovation is important as it relates to intellectual property, product differentiation and sustainable competitive advantage. But just building a better mousetrap does not ensure business success.

Add up all the time wasted doing things that aren’t important in your organization—by you, your direct reports and those reporting to you indirectly. You’ll probably end up with a large number. That number represents your organization’s misalignment.

We once facilitated an executive session with a large company that included three levels of managers. A manager and her direct report volunteered for an exercise you may wish to try in your company.

Too often companies do not pay enough attention to cost control until they run out of cash. By then it’s too late to take the actions necessary to avoid major problems. 

Anyone who has ever tried to raise capital knows that the absolute worst time to get cash from banks or other funding sources is when you desperately need it. The most likely result of a severe cash shortfall without some advanced notice and no access to additional capital is failure.

Anyone who manages people in today’s challenging world knows that it doesn’t get easier – just more complicated and, for that matter, more interesting.  The Big Book of HR has been revised and expanded to reflect some of the new realities leaders and managers face.  The book is filled with information on topics ranging from hiring to firing and everything in between including engagement, retention, total rewards, flexibility, performance management, employee development, risk management and so much more. The following are some key insights taken from this book.

Labor markets are as tight. Talent wars are in full regalia and you’re top employee just gave you the “Hey, boss, can I talk to you for a minute” request, as they lean in your office, holding themselves by one hand behind your door frame. You know what’s coming: They are resigning.

Yep, the person says they have another offer to join a different company. All the standard clichés, reasons and accolades for you and organization are delivered, but, in the end “...it’s time I leave here” is the final appeal.
