has grown organically and I am living through the consequences of a reactive type of management that needs to become more proactive as the organization plans for further growth. Planning enables a team to anticipate and prepare for a recurring systematic problem instead of having to devise and reintroduce a new solution and a temporary fix every time the same problem arises. Unfortunately, although I am one of the decision-makers in my company, I have not been able to implement planning evenly throughout the organization.

I believe that risk is a necessary aspect of business and life. In the absence of risk there would be no change, progress, or innovation. Therefore, when I have evidence that the current state of affairs is not producing results, I am compelled to explore new possibilities and to experiment with new methodologies that could possibly lead me to realizing my personal and professional goals and aspirations.
