Scratching below every surface, niggling away, decisions are put off in the expectation that time will tell.
For most of them, time has told.
– The marketing campaign that’s failed to drive any benefit.
– The new hire who’s proved her worth and is now due that review and salary hike.
– The tardy production worker who promised to turn over a new leaf but continues to let his colleagues down.
– The risky new product that’s caught a wave – time to double down.
– The risky new product that’s caught a cold – time to pull the rug.
– The supplier who’s become more miss than hit.
– The pilot project that’s absolutely shown itself as a better way to do things around here.
When the plan was based on “wait and see”, and you’ve waited, and you’ve seen … move on.
Skippy strategy: If time has told, do what it says.
