From Executive Intelligence, quoting Irene Rosenfeld, former CEO of Frito-Lay:
Because we know speed is of the essence, too often we immediately start moving without first taking the time to think about what we’re trying to accomplish.
There are hundreds of stories about this. Everyone is trying to act quickly, but too often they run out to solve a problem without fully understanding what problem they are trying to solve. This creates a lot of organizational angst which slows things down and leads to all sorts of issues regarding job satisfaction and work-life balance.
