A fancy office is meaningless if you didn’t lay concrete correctly, the building won’t sustain difficulties.
I’ve been working in restaurants and most of them didn’t have defined processes in place. Lean thinking was unknown, short-term thinking was usually driven by short-term monetary reward, and almost all of them lacked a defined organizational culture.
Well, in essence, they lacked the concrete, the right foundation that will sustain a fancy office.
For sure it is more appealing to decorate your office than building the right foundation, but what’s more beneficial in the long-run?
