DON'T IGNORE ICEBERG WARNINGS!
E. J. Smith, captain of the Titanic, received at least 5 separate warning transmission about icebergs on June 14th. The set of events that led up to the sinking remains relevant to leaders and entrepreneurs even today. Our webinar will discuss the key tools you can use to steer your business away from dangerous waters and towards success.Sign me up!
What happened to the 5 warnings?
When captain Smith recieved his first warning on the morning of that fateful day, he passed the message on to the bridge with no instruction and did nothing else. The second warning, recieved early afternoon was showed to the Chairman of the White Star Line, again without instruction from the captain, who changed course marginally, but didn't alter speed. His priority was setting a record time for a luxury liner to make the crossing.
A couple of hours later, the Chairman posted the second warning to the bridge without instruction just before Smith attended a dinner party celebrating his retiring voyage, during which a third warning was recieved and overheard by the crew. Smith did leave early to talk with his second officer but then went immediately to bed.
The last two warning tranmissions were cut off by the crew due to an overload of messages from passengers.
With binocular's locked up and inaccessible by the crew and the ship going at a fast pace, even when the iceberg was spotted, any effort to change course was in vain and the ship made the fatal collision.
These same mistakes appear in many forms when running a business. Ignoring warnings, vague instructions and neglecting the tools at your disposal can all happen without a focus on "business navigation".
How is this applied to business?
This expertise, called "Financial Planning and Analysis" is common in large companies. It often comes in the form of a dedicated team that operates separate from accounting and has a number of key features.
- They look forward, not backwards
- Turn data into vital information
- They highlight risks and opportunities and quantify potential outcomes for optimum decision making.
- They ensure the company is proactive, not reactive by giving sight of what’s ahead.
This is where I’ve spent 20 years of my professional career, working in a variety of corporations from SMEs to global leaders in their market. I went from trainee to chief navigator for a FTSE250 company that spans over 3 continents. My work involved supporting the captain in his assessment of risks and opportunities and guiding him in his decision making by providing relevant, meaningful information.Sign me up to the free live event now!
