  • Companies
  • Products
  • Departments
  • Processes
  • Employees

No success without new input, that's a fact. But as sure as the amen in church is: Wrong implementation has the opposite effect and makes further implementation more difficult from time to time. A hurdle that is then more and more difficult to take.

Why do so many approaches fail? And then who has the ass card?

Definitely the elephant in the china shop! In this case, he is the one who wants to change something immediately, now and at all without considering losses. The fan base is definitely crumbling.

No, it's not always because of the others in the comfort zone, so first answer the following questions:

  • And how sustainable was your project?
  • Be extremely honest with yourself, why didn't it work out?
  • Did the implementation work, what was the reason for it?

The good thing is that there is a chance to turn things around again, so "get on with the meatballs".
