Business Structure and Guidelines are not always the Enemy of Creativity

Posted by Key Yessaad @zenkey on January 11, 2013 at 7:00 AM

Structures that work for the long term have constrains and parameters; Cars will be useless without Roads; Trains a heap of metal without Rails; Planes wandering metal birds without Airports; Yes Structure creates reliability, predictability, and opportunity. There are many entrepreneurs who think that building a business structure will stifle creativity; and yes some overdo the rigidity of their work habits; but if you look at Google, SAS, and Facebook and think that because the employees and engineers have the ability to play Ping Pong, get a massage in the afternoon that there isn’t a Structure you would be misled. Every Business Endeavor needs Rails, you can paint your rails pink to feel good about the decor, but they are rails nonetheless. Those of you who drive a lot on multi lane highways are unconsciously grateful for the the little dotted while line that help us stay on track and not wander; your business needs those little dotted lines to keep you on track – your Business Plan; Your Activity Log; Your Yearly Agenda; and hopefully colleagues who hold you to account.
