1. Start your Quest by identifying one measurement tool to determine progress.
“There’s always a measure you can use that will tell you that you're doing a good job when in truth, you may not really know for sure because you’re using too many of them.”
2. Utilize a simple framework that ties together the components of problem, outcome, barrier and measurement of your Quest.
Life's complicated as it is and we don't need to over-complicate it. And the simpler, cleaner you can tie this thread of simplicity through the elements of your Quest, the more you can build momentum, and the easier it is to communicate and be able to get buy-in and commitment across several different stakeholders.
3. Choose one key tactical function towards Quest success that everyone on the team can complete every single day.
In this episode, Andy recalls the $10M impact of the “every single day” mindset from his days at Walmart. When a mindset becomes part of the culture, the impact is widespread.Download the Transcript (PDF)
