It was Rob who first alerted me to Team Sky and their incremental change policy.
Cycling has its advantages.
There is cash, open exposure, a ranking system, and a whole team dedicated to nothing more than getting over the line first.
Knowing your authentic goal is one thing.
Knowing where you sit in relation to benchmarked performance is another.
Having cash will help you gain prominence (or conversely, disrepute) in flashy style, but cash is not everything.
It can lead you far down blind alleys without you even realising it.
The best way of achieving an honest goal respectably is through incremental change.
One step at a time.
And status or reputation bears no correlation to the ability to find effective solutions.
Think of NASA.
When their aeronautical engineers failed to design a lighter engine mount, they opened the problem up to the world, launching a competition with prize money of a mere $20,000.
It was won by a cycle repairman in a village in India, who blew their meagre expectations beyond the geosynchronous ring with a massive 85% reduction in weight.
Likewise in nursing, patient safety doesn’t have to be expensive.
Innovations like the Ten Minute MET Meeting and Below Ten Thousand arrive on managers’ desks with a zero price tag.
We ignore such incremental gains at our peril, usually because our confirmation bias seeks complacency in the misguided illusion that we don’t have a problem.
But we DO have a problem, and we had better get used to backing our clinicians who come cap in hand with solutions before our self-sustaining delusions get blasted into outer space.
