ProTip: Evaluate, Don't Assume Success

Michelle Nitchie / Apr 24, 2014 8:00:00 AM


However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.

- Sir Winston Churchill

When we engage in a new program, it can be easy to get wrapped up in the excitement and positivity that it brings.  Perhaps it's a new marketing tool that will surely bring in a wealth of new leads and customers.  Perhaps it's a customer service training program that will surely increase the customer experience (especially if it is a training program from ProSolutions!).  The more impressive the strategy is, the more likely we are to assume that it will work for us.  

While optimism is wonderful, it can occasionally blind us to thinking critically about the results.  As Churchill reminds us, we need to stay focused on the results and not make assumptions that our carefully selected strategy is working the way we intended it to.  If we remain critical, we can react appropriately and tweak, alter, or replace our strategy, as necessary.  Remember: what gets measured gets managed.
