“Move That Bus”

For Impact Ideas | | Tom Suddes

I happened to be walking by a television when the Home Makeover show was on… right at the time when everyone shouts: “MOVE THAT BUS.”

It immediately reminded me of Jim Collins’ eponymous BUS metaphor.

You’ve all heard the right people on bus, wrong people off bus, right people in the right seats.

What you might not have heard was the interesting conclusion that with the right people in the right seats (and the wrong people no longer on the bus)… the bus can move in any direction and still be very successful. As we constantly try to remind our organizations and leaders, it’s not about perfect plans or perfect strategies or perfect direction. It’s all about ACTION.
