Evolving your business can be a moving target. Running a business is extremely costly from HR, to healthcare, insurance, taxes and the rising demands of employees. It never ends.
All the operational hurdles, and you're still starring down that road thinking; "How do I create sustainability from where I am now?" A certain level of focus on execution, real capabilities, and a well-managed process is where that staying power you desire will happen for you and your enterprise..
Getting into what is going on in the business is part observation, and organic feel. Getting into what is going to get you out of what is going on with the business is highly process-driven, zooming in on the key performance indicators driving the issues. First things first: Share what’s going on (data-dump). Next we look at and build our work around the data.

Looking at the people the organization, financials, timing, and other resources through a different land is key.
