THE POWER OF WHY IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Great leaders inspire everyone by this simple question "Why" to take action and achieve remarkable results. "Why" lets you think outside of the box and stand out ahead of the crowd. Inspiring people is not about how to do things and what to do, but it is about WHY to do. Know the power of the three letter word "WHY?"

WHY? - SOLVES YOUR PROBLEM FROM IT’S ROOT

Solving root causes by corrective action will avoid recurring non conformity. Whenever you have a nonconformity/defect in your business process, asking WHY leads you to the root cause. Most managers lack the skill of identifying the root cause. As a result they will only rectify the symptoms and not the cause. Your business can lose a lot when a correction is performed instead of a corrective action. Read Correction Vs Corrective Action

WHY - RESULTS IN FORMULATING EFFECTIVE PROCEDURES

Effective procedures are a key for business success. Your corrective action process will result in formulating effective procedures. Continual improvement can be achieved only if you have well written practical procedures.

Therefore throwing out the three letter word (Why) could stimulate creative ideas or thoughts to improve your productivity, service, delivery and so on.

Reminds me of an exam in college, Our prof gave us an exam with 1 question.

Why?

People wrote pages and pages explaining why, some wrote nothing. I wrote "Because" and got 50 on the exam. A friend of mine, nailed it "Why Not" and got 100%. The only one in the class.

Moral is to sometimes look for the easy answer! It might be right in front of you!
