Part 4 of our series on Mindful Sustainabilty . . .
Avoid Knee-Jerk Sustainability
Has your sustainability program to date been jumping on board with the newest concept, the newest software, the newest dashboard, etc. that is being hyped to collect data and fix your operations problems? How’s that been working for you? I’m guessing not as well as you hoped. That’s because there’s no way of getting away from paying attention. Fad diets don’t work; and neither does fad sustainability. There is no magic bullet and no one size fits all solution. That’s not to say there aren’t a lot of great resources. There most definitely are. But they are only tools to collect and summarize the data. You will still need to be able to digest and understand that information and take action. You need to be able to keep your finger on the pulse of your operations, identify when action is needed, and determine the appropriate action needed to right the ship. Did you like all the catch phrases? Good, because here’s another one. Be the turtle, not the hare, to win the race. Let’s talk about how we can help you create a mindful sustainable operations program.
