Yesterday was the time of compliance; tomorrow may bring some new challenges; but today is the time that the focus is switched to making cuts.
Whether there is a new style of contract or money to save, the time is now, today.
As the film “Kung Fu Panda” proposes, all that is necessary is to “believe”.
Here are some ideas you might believe in:
- New style of contract – can you model a new contract in your existing software, then run what-if scenarios to see if it suits your aims?
- Field workers can work from home – how many inspections are needed, thus how many inspectors?
One computer system can be extended to other departments, reducing the total number of systems owned by an Organisation.
If you are hoping for a revelation from the Dragon’s Scroll, remember that the scroll was blank. “The secret lies within”, our hero is informed. All of the really impressive Highways ideas I have seen are not really new; they have been around for years.
We know what to do, we just need to believe in ourselves. Then “today” will be rewarding and “tomorrow” less mystery and more fun.
