There is a huge need for “change” , for “corporate excellence” , to tackle the world’s problems in a whole. But how? Absolutely NOT how we did “manage” it the last 120 years. LEAN, SixSigma, PDCA, AI, ERP, ….. all “tools” to “get on track” again. But which track ? The same? Preferably not I would say.

Excellence should be a mindset by default , and for many of us it is, in fact I cannot imagine somebody going to work in the morning saying “Let’s make as much trouble as possible” and yet…. How do we get into as much trouble as we do ? My answer is simple : Because we have poor (weak) decision making. And how is that possible? By information getting
filtered out through “subjective analyze”. In this blog I will be posting some comments on (global and local) issues, which could be a result of poor decision making, just for the sake of showing that this is a universal problem in all industries and through all categories or levels of decision takers.

PV : Rethink society

It is funny to see how smart AND how dumb we collectively are when it comes to money. Mix it up with greed,and selfishness and look what we have ! A crisis which is bad, people starve or take their life... And the best we can do is go " Well that's bad" . I tried to mobilize my children (15 and 13) to do something for their counterparts in Greece (the ones starving and fainting in classes because they have no food ...) and got realy upset when they couldn't be bothered. So not only did we forget what happened in the previous crisisses (or how it got to that point) apparently it is human nature to not be bothered .
(My children have a big heart, are social and have no clue about making money on this situation so that's not a reason.) And now this , in a whole got me even more upset because what's going to be the outcome? Well roughly, some people will get rich, some will get poor, many will suffer some will die, some by their own doing and some will do ok... in the end we will survive I guess but for me, as a human being , I cannot believe we all are as shallow as it gets, because when we are not affected personally (and really personally) our intrest of doing something fundamental decimates, even if it is our neighbour (or family...) So , leaders of the wolrd, CEO's, Academics, NGO's and all other individuals who have any influence, unite and rethink our society PLEASE !!!
