Andy Grove and Coca-Cola recognized the need for strategic changes and pivoted. Theresa May did not. That failure is going to lead to a lot of pain for a lot of people. Don’t do that. Recognize a major change with an enduring impact for what it is and hit a restart button early and decisively.
Continuing to do the same thing and expecting a different result is not productive. If things aren’t working, if your circumstances have changed, or if your ambitions have changed, you’re at a point of inflection. Hit a restart button and change your strategies, organization and operations all together and all at the same time.
