A VERY interesting post today over at Monday Morning Insight about what the church could learn from Microsoft. This is a good list of things that ought to be talked about! There’s also an interesting comment in the post about what the church could learn form Apple.
I especially like #2: Bet the Company’s Future On Big Opportunities. There are way too many times that what ends up happening is an extension of our existing "commitments" and not really about the future or opportunities that could make massive trajectory corrections. This has a lot to do with an earlier post about projected futures versus extrapolated pasts. When our pre-existing commitments (read budgets, programs, schedules, etc.) keep us from seizing huge opportunities we’re unable to seize the moments that present themselves.
Take a look at the whole list of learnings and let me know what you think.
