This Is So Urgent (Is It?)

It is obvious that almost all the organizations in the world need a strong change. Do you think it is normal that everybody who has a job is very busy? Is it normal making overtime work all the time to finish important and urgent tasks, and feeling stress while working. We need to re-engineer the corporations!

Now, a lot of people from different sectors work stress-fully to bring up their trivial works as if they were important. But even they are aware of this unimportance; they do nothing to change it.

Let me say something, we have to change it. If there are people who think that change is unnecessary, they should not think their misapprehend achievements are under guarantee.

We have to improve our processes. Constant change should be our permanent feature not a harbor that we rarely visit. Unfortunately, our ways will always change; there will be operations that we cannot easily figure out. It seems hard but there are naturally adapted Y and Z generations for these possible changes. It is unacceptable to make plans for organizations without considering Y and Z generations.

People should notice that as soon as possible. But it is not that easy. I notice that my actions generally do not create awareness in my family and my colleagues.

A book named “A Sense of Urgency” which is published by Harvard Business Press is very inspiring about what I told above. It can increase the awareness of readers.

One of the things that the book indicates that people are satisfied with their situations. As I see and very surprised that people really are. This satisfaction can be explained as being not aware of the danger. In a very fast changing world, sloth and this satisfaction are the enemies of productivity and quality.

The interesting thing is, even a manager who agrees with what I wrote above, sometimes cannot notice that a team which he/she directs is full of employees who are satisfied with their situations And this will never let that manager to accomplish his/her future dreams.

The pressure that he/she puts on the team knowingly or unknowingly creates a false sense of urgency. So people show themselves urgently working so much… But I guess you can imagine how hard working it is! A manager can wake up when he/she notices the inefficiency despite of her/his team’s long working hours. Maybe he/she will never wake up!
