Outcomes Over Outputs
You know how much love and care you put into making your products, right? But let's take a moment and think about the big picture. It's super important to look at what happens after we create something. Does it make someone's day better? Does it get used the way we hoped? That's what we mean by impact, and it's super important.
Making impact/outcomes the priority can be daunting at first! But start by asking, "Are we making a difference?" And if we're not, how can we change that?
Because it's not just about what you make; it's about the mark it leaves. Outcomes keep you tethered to your vision and magnify the impact of your efforts.
You may ask how to get started, here’s your answer!
🚀 Embrace the Impact-Focused Approach
Focusing on an impact-focused journey may nudge you out of your comfort zone. It requires reimagining roles, quality assessment, hiring, planning, and even funding initiatives. This isn't a path for the faint-hearted but for those ready to challenge the status quo and drive meaningful change.
🤔 Why This Mindset Shift Is Crucial
Choosing outcomes over outputs isn't merely a philosophical stance—it's about enhancing your business and societal impact. It's about acknowledging the uncomfortable uncertainties that come with this approach and recognizing that the benefits far outweigh the discomfort.
🌟 Practice Makes Perfect
Remember, adopting this method isn't a one-time skill acquisition; it's a practice that must be honed continually. Build trust, support, and information flow within your team. Focus on what matters and improve iteratively.
📈 Adapt and Overcome
Every company, regardless of size, will have to juggle multiple operating models and reorganize to face new challenges. Creating a safe space for practice and innovation is vital. Avoid blindly following trends and frameworks—inspect, adapt, and establish a rhythm of continuous improvement.
If someone questions whether your team is "doing it right," the answer lies in whether you're generating better outcomes. Break away from rigid templates and silver bullet solutions. Instead, build resilience and flexibility and let the results speak for themselves.
Remember, at the end of the day, the difference you make is what truly counts.
