Lead & Grow Fast with the: T.L.R.R. Technique
The scientific method is defined as a method of procedure that has characterized natural science since the 17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses.
In short, it is the method which is used to identify opportunities and insure that your first assertion is correct.
In today’s, fast-paced social media driven environment developing systems to sift through the endless flow of data is a critical factor that can determine your team’s success. That said, I would like to share a system that has served my teams and I well.
This system encompasses some elements of the scientific method, but is not limited to the aforementioned methodology. I will discuss each section in detail below:
After you have established a hypothesis, concept, playbook or approach that you would like to implement within your organization. It makes sense to test your idea before implementation. Initial test will reveal flaws in your original concept; and in the long run can be the difference between your success and failure.
Take Space X for example. Without completing multiple test to land a rocket ship on a stationary target, the space aviation industry would not have eclipsed the following milestone so rapidly:
(Testing may be expensive and / or time consuming on the front end, but in the long run it is the R&D step which will safeguard your team, products or company from future shock.)
Consider the test to be the research hand and the lessons learned and results of your testing as a call to action. Consequently, leading to new developments and / or approaches aimed at maximizing your team’s success. Both hands – research & development – will clean up the face of your systems and in turn insure that you are bringing the best plan to the table.
That said, no matter how thorough your R&D you will be forced to make adjustments. Adjustments that will either fix flawed methodology or take your performance, product or output to a new level.
I recommend revising early and often.
After revisions are complete it is important to bring your efforts to life and further safeguard your team’s growth by making adjustments based upon your findings. Resubmission may seem like “common sense” but often times it is the step neglected while teams balance the implementation and growth of the preexisting system.
If you want to take your performance from good to great and foster unstoppable results: You will not rest on your laurels, in turn allowing your organization to embrace the idiom:
The world is growing at a rapid pace and the teams that are willing to keep their eyes facing tomorrow in the face of success. Will be right fitted for change and positioned to lead their industry, league, market or sales channel going forward.
