It’s Monday morning, and I know of 3 situations right now where an organization is considering bringing me in for a keynote, and there is a committee involved.
2 of these 3 decisions have been dragging on for more than few weeks. I suspect that I might get 1 of the 3 assignments, because committees often simply cannot get the simplest of things done.
Which, of course, is how organizations often miss out on the future. They are too busy deferring decisions through delegation of those decisions to a committee — with the result that a decision can’t be made.
Committee’s work in some cases, but in many other situations, result in that dreaded disease I identified years ago: aggressive indecision.
Does this happen often? Yup! I had a similar decision last March and wrote a blog post around the same idea!
