Leading the way
Perhaps you might have heard the famous line of
Michael Corleone" in The Godfather Part II " which goes something like this " My father taught me many things here — he taught me in this room. He taught me — keep your friends close but your enemies closer."
Yep, the concept is the same with one of the sayings in the book of Sun Tzu entitled " The Art of War".
See, I've always pondered about the idea of going to wars. It is a battle out there everyday anyway and I hope you would agree.
Say, a new competition joins the neighborhood attracting locals with new stuff. It gets you thinking, will my customers prefer the familiar over the exciting? So you start thinking of ways to improve and compete. You put up promos and maybe it won't even mind the competition. But you know what, one should always have a plan and a strategy in doing things. Well shit happens when we least expect it I guess, so it would still be better to have a plan.
Now we are talking about strategy. For every team there is a goal and a plan.
I say we make a good plan and we do it. As for Team Sixteen 8, we believe in collaboration. We plan to communicate with the people. We plan to find out how we can grow the business from what has been said.
