In PPP83: Foundation 3 – Create an Org Structure I shared some key elements and considerations for creating functional org structures. With this ‘Foundation 3’ in mind, I’m following up with one of the most critical components we must include in our organization: Logistics. In the Incident Command System (ICS) and the U.S. Military, logistical duties are pretty well defined. There are people who regularly prepare and serve large amounts of food, repair and service vehicles, plan transportation for the boots on the ground and more.
Without these critical elements of a plan, the plan cannot be executed. The same holds true for projects, programs, products, etc. If we don’t have the right people, a facility to work in or around, equipment to track the data and yes, food to provide to our teams, we cannot function as efficiently as a team.
In Foundations Friday 31: Logistics Makes Things Happen I touch on the above items and more as reminders for those of us who facilitate processes or approve plans to always remember we need stuff, people, things, facilities and communications to make our well put together plans actually happen.
Thank you for reading this, listening, leaving a review on your favorite platform and just for hitting Play.
Stay safe, wash your hands and Godspeed,
