These are some characteristics I have observed over the years that make up the winning programs and individuals I have seen. It is real pretty simple, but the lesser programs, the perennial also ran’s don’t seem to be able to execute these.
Continuity– In a sound program there is not constant change and turnover of personnel. You win when good people allowed to do what they do best.
Consistency– A steady approach, no wild variations.
Clarity of Purpose– Everyone knows where they are going and has a clear roadmap of how to get there. Laser focus, nothing less.
Sense of Urgency– Get it done now and do it well. Don’t wait, the best time to get it done is now.
