Take the easy road to higher earnings "There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult." --Warren Buffett, CEO, Berkshire Hathaway Picking lowhanging fruit should be easy. Yet despite all the cost cutting and lean sixsigmaing, the branches of corporate trees are sagging from the weight of lowhanging fruit. Why not grab them and make things easy? Too often managers blind themselves to solutions right in front of them and choose instead to suffer through long meetings, poor collaboration, politics, and bureaucracy. Throw in the challenge of getting agreement when everyone has their own opinion (often "fact-free") and your low-hanging fruit just withers on the vine. "If only HP knew what HP knows, we'd be three times more productive."--Lew Platt, former CEO, Hewlett Packard Those closest to the work (from the factory floor to the C-Suite) and those closest to the customer know great ways to improve productivity and profits.
