K for Kinetic

Neil ButlerUntypical Thoughts

For those of us who studied secondary school physics, we’d all recognise kinetic as being the form of energy relating to movement, calculated as being ½ multiplied by the mass multiplied by the speed squared.

The word kinetic comes from the Ancient Greek kinetikos meaning “puts in motion”. So much of what we have talked about in the past 25 days has related to getting things happening.

Start the process of Transformagination. Encourage creative and innovative thinking. Be adventurous and brave. Get things in motion.

As we mentioned a couple of days ago, many businesses are held back by an organisational inertia that requires a significant effort – an unbalanced force to use Newton’s term – to get things moving.

What steps are you taking to create some kinetic activity within your organisation? If you don’t do it, who will? If now isn’t the right time, when will that be?
