    • Right side:  Who is in that structure? Process, organization and team (Structure should always follow strategy.
    • Bottom side:  How are we measuring progress?  Metrics, success (What get's measured is what gets done).
    • Left side:  What is it like to work around here?  Culture behavior. (Actions speak louder than words).
  • 20/20 Rule:
    • 20% of the people in an organization are change warriors. Harness and empower

    • 60% Skeptics.  Waiting to see.  Change never happens unless the 60% are moved.
  • Faith is required to reach its full potential.
