I created this page to remind me of inspired thinking of some great minds. The 'quotes' may not be direct quotes in every instance, but merely something I attribute to the person.

Peter Drucker

The first step in any growth policy is identifying what to abandon.

The foundation of effective leadership is thinking through the organization's mission, defining it, and establishing it, clearly and visibly.

Mission statements have to be operational; otherwise it's merely good intentions. It's the managers's task to try to transform the organization's mission statement into specifics.

Knowledge work is not defined by its quantity. Nor is it defined by its costs. It is defined by its results.

The marketplace is the only place that matters. Results and resources exist only outside the business. Results are achieved by exploiting opportunities, not by solving problems. To obtain results, resources must be allocated to opportunities. The most meaningful results go to the market leaders.

Dr. Rob Gilbert

First we form habits, then they form us. Conquer your bad habits or they will conquer you.

Dr. Edward Deming

It is important that an aim never be defined in terms of a specific activity or method.
