Four assumptions—are we on the same page?

Steve Worth, President of Plexus Consulting, LLC

Fast growing associations of all kinds share these four leadership assumptions:

  • Growth is good—growth is part of the definition of life.  If you are not growing you are dying.
  • All business-related organizations should be market-focused—and markets change, that is what markets do; so strategies and tactics need to be assessed frequently in order to remain relevant.
  • Decisions should be based on solidly researched facts—fact-based decision making beats any of the alternatives!
  • Form follows function—once you have determined what needs to be done your organization’s operational and governance structures should be adapted to help achieve that end objective.

So simple yet so complicated for so many organizations.
