Historically, it is easy to see how technology has been adopted and how it has fundamentally changed a lot of key business practices around us.

I have been attending the SLA (Strategic Leadership Association) retreats for years now. Each one has given me some new tools and techniques to better my business. The topics are always something useful to the business world but not why I attend. I attend because of the wealth of knowledge in the room at each retreat. The room is filled with business owners and managers that have a combined knowledge far greater than anything I could have imagined. Being able to hear how they have improved their businesses, what has worked, what hasn’t worked and where they plan to get to in the future and how they will get there has been immeasurable in terms of value.

Have you heard the phrase “You can’t manage what you can’t measure”?
It’s true, to an extent, but we must be careful not to get carried away and measure too much. If we keep track of too many metrics, we lose focus on what is really important. Because, what really drives your business?
Change isn’t easy but, as it’s been said, “the only constant in life is change.” Successfully managing change is crucial to successfully managing your business, and it requires an awareness of the roadblocks that might fall on your path as well as techniques to overcome or avoid them all together.
