After introducing the concept on Monday, we first looked at your personal speed to clarity, then at your organization’s speed to clarity.
Today I want to close the series by showing you a simple pattern recognition that you can use to accelerate your speed to clarity – both personally and as an organization.
Here’s what I notice: both individuals and organizations who have a slow speed to clarity tend to choke at one of these 5 steps linking the recognition of an issue with it’s eventual resolution:
1. There’s a problem
2. The problem has my attention
3. I can clearly see what the root cause of the problem is
4. I can clearly see what the most likely solutions are
5. I can clearly see which of the possible solutions is the best answer to the problem
Take a look. Think back on the last few times you’ve needed speed to clarity – where’s your personal stumbling point in the steps above?
What about the key teams in your organization – at which step do they most frequently stumble?
What about your organization overall?
