Actions speak louder than words: Getting things done. By Robin Tidd
Individual managers vary in their ability to complete actions which they have ‘picked up’ at meetings. Although this can sometimes be an individual thing, often is it more of an organisational failing. After all, top management set the standards and govern the methodology.
At this point we need to look closer at the most common reasons for actions going awry. I have listed below what I think are root causes, ie, genuine reasons as opposed to excuses. Apologies to those of you who feel this stuff is very basic. You are correct, it is basic, but it happens - often.
