LeadU presents EES [Efficient, Effective, Sustainable]



EES [Efficient, Effective, Sustainable]

I’ve used this set of terms to reflect the consequences of Right Action.

I actually have an unpublished manuscript on Right Action – Right Results, so I’ll just remind you of the idea of Right Action:

-Right People
-Right Things
-Right Time
-Right Space
-Right Results
-Right Reasons

This pretty much simplifies the interdependencies among components required for "Efficient, Effective, and Sustainable”.

Sustainability is the bugaboo in most of our processes, things like dissipative structures, equilibrium, and entropy can be very interesting, as we enter the realities of sustainability.

MOST of what we are doing today is not sustainable, while it is often efficient and effective –> strategic and executed well.

Yet, to meet all three tests, it begs the question that in all likelihood will help us design with more compassion.

At least, that is a hope I hold on to.  <G>

Helpful Hint: Each part of our viewpoint, should at least concern the efficiency with which we do things.  Do we do them in a way that has the end in mind and is sustainable as well?  That is effective IMHO.

Action Step: Try something the next time you design something:

View it from the point of sustainability, identify whether over time, it will actually be generative.  And if it’s not, one thing that has helped me is to design the exit strategy, and clean up your mess in the process.  Not everything can, or needs to be sustainable.  What does need to happen is how we see things, needs a perspective of sustainability.  Perhaps, we can’t always have MORE guiding everything
