The power of principle
July 8, 2009
Amid the array of methods, resources, and strategies to improve performance is a
fundamental underpinning often overlooked. This understated value is principle.
Principle is a solid foundation of core values.
Strategy focused organizations are successful based on several guiding

The new frontier is fraught with complexity and challenge. The next level of
success for organizations is rife with opportunity for those who embrace strategic
thinking. There is a new playing field where “Old rules to a new game“ are no

Much has been described about “Enterprise 2.0” (and soon to be 3.0)”. The
solutions needed to address and solve the problems of the “Next Generation” are
integral and imperative for breakthrough organizational performance. The
question to be asked is “Is your organization on board for the voyage?” After all,
the enterprise is waiting to launch.

The wave of the future is upon us. Organizations must carefully employ resources
that establish a solid foundation in enterprise growth and evolution.
Understanding the nature of organizations — how they can change, and how they
are inclined to change — is key to creating these types of enterprises.
