Segment Idea: Want a Fast, Flexible, and Focused Management Team? Teach Them to Iterate /Expert Tips
I’m contacting you with a story idea about how organizations Iterate for optimal communication and responsive decision-making.
The big idea: Iteration is the way effective organizations solve problems whose solutions are too complex to be predefined. Just look for the highest‐performing entrants in any given market. Chances are they’re Iterating.
The so-what: Managers are the feedback system of an organization, and managers who continually ask themselves and their teams what the next logical step to be taken is — and then take it, learn from it and repeat the process — are Iterating.
The source: Ed Muzio is a leader in the application of analytical models to group and organization effectiveness and output. His analytical approach to human productivity has been featured in national and international media, including CBS News, Fox Business News and The New York Post.
