Just because something works well

Bob’s Masterclass has two camera angles.

Just because something works well, does not mean it cannot be improved.

The road to excellence has no finish line.

The road to excellence ends where?

The road to excellence has no finish line. Two days ago during 5k walk.

Always be driven to make the experience more hassle-free. Race packets used to contain a small ankle bracelet with the chip timer.

Continuous improvement benefits the customer and the company. No more chip bracelets.

 

The road to excellence has no finish line.

Would you prefer to go back to printing a boarding pass?

Or going to the library to do research?

Disney’s Continuous Improvement Process

Disney Stroller
You couldn’t take Disney Strollers on the Train and the Train was the quickest way to get to the back of the Park. Huge Guest dissatisfier. 

 

Recognize and celebrate is often the most difficult (at least for me) because as soon as something is improved or solved, there is always an immediate need to solve or improve something else clamoring for attention.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Where is the finish line in the pursuit of excellence?

Think of the Disney animated classics from 1937 – 1995. Fifty-eight years worth of unprecedented animation.

Nearly six decades.

Have you ever looked back on your best accomplishments as a leader, professionally and personally?

i mean, spent serious time, without pressure and distraction?

Our best work doesn’t last, unless it’s timeless, and the odds of that happening are rare. Look at what Pixar’s Toy Story did with CGI.

Therefore, our best work has an expiration date.

It’s not fair.

But it is fair.

It’s not fair for everyone, thus the fairness.

At Disney, we are never satisfied.

This is Disney’s least talked about business secret.

Once we improve something, we start the (continuous) process to improve upon the improvement.

The road to excellence has no finish line.

If Disney ran your business, never being satisfied would be something you’d have to get used to.

What’s the number one metric we should be measuring but can’t?

(photo: There are many proactive ways to influence culture, and stories from the past are critical – Mid Life Celebration’s genesis revolves around a pregnant woman sitting on a chair in a movie scene.)

What’s the number one metric we should be measuring but can’t?

Culture.

Culture is what people think and do without thinking.

And what we accept by default becomes the standard.

This ought to scare the heck out of you if you’re in charge of culture.

How do we measure culture?

Experience your product for yourself and use your best judgement.

No?
