Managing Your Vendors, Suppliers and Contractors Starts with Procurement

Managing Your Vendors, Suppliers and Contractors Starts with Procurement

I worked on a project for a client a little while ago. They wanted two things. One, they wanted to know whether the existing suppliers and contractors they procured services from were well aligned with their needs, culture, goals and objectives. That one was easy. Essentially the procurement process didn’t have any criteria related to […]

7 Reasons You Can’t Influence With Your Business Writing

Writing isn’t just to communicate. In business, just about everything you write should be designed to influence the audience. It may be to gain acceptance, improve your image, have someone follow instructions or give you formal approval for an initiative or business case.

Don’t Give Your Employees the Solution – Give Them The Tools They Need To Solve It Themselves Instead

Don’t Give Your Employees the Solution – Give Them The Tools They Need To Solve It Themselves Instead

Recently, someone came to me to help them find a solution to a business problem. I managed to help them find the best possible solution. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t actually give them the solution. What I did was help him walk through the issue and discover the solution himself simply by providing a […]

Pay For Performance Gone Wrong

Pay For Performance Gone Wrong

If you’ve read my past material on performance management and KPI’s, you know research shows that financial incentives (and penalties) can drive the wrong behavior in your staff and suppliers. I’ve seen it personally and research shows it. We don’t have to see evidence just in one industry – it’s everywhere. I found a recent […]

Getting Team Collaboration – By Design

Getting Team Collaboration – By Design

Teamwork is an overused phrase. We need to move beyond the ‘no I in Team’ concept and recognize that most of the structures we put in place don’t foster a true teamwork / collaborative environment. And often, that‘s not something you can change, it’s driven by your organization’s HR department and overall culture. The trick […]
