Seth’s right, and there’s more

Is there anyone who doesn’t love Seth Godin’s blog?

I think it’s one of the first blogs I subscribed to by email because I didn’t want to miss anything.

Today he’s got a post on why joint ventures fail. It’s a quick and worthwhile read, but the problem he points to goes way beyond joint ventures. In a word, one key point of failure is lack of clear accountability. If you work in or with a large organization, you need no further explanation.  If you’re one of my clients whose started to use a methodology called the Action Cycle, you have way more traction on this. For every task in your work, there is a clear definition of the outcome and who is responsible for exactly what so that the outcome gets produced.

One of my clients last year led his retail bank branch region to become number one in the country using the Action Cycle. In a future post I’ll write more about what it is and how it can save you time, lower costs, help you lose weight, get dates, and get rippling abs.  OK, well, it does help a lot with the time/money/business performance stuff…you’re on your own for the rest.
