Last week, we talked about how to tell that the organization you're working for (or with) is surviving on borrowed time. This week, something a little more positive: How to tell when you're working with an organization that might actually have a future. A few signs:

  • Meetings are short, because people think through what they have to report and write it down thoughtfully for everyone to digest before stepping into the meeting room.
  • Someone is designated as the devil's advocate in every meeting, and the job rotates among the participants from meeting to meeting.
  • The people who make the decisions have a specific way of getting fast feedback from the people on the ground doing the actual work.
