Championing Improvement Initiatives for Your Company

Margaret Heffernan posted an interesting article on How to Champion an Idea: Tips from the Invention of the Post-It Note

Post It Notes were invented 30 years ago, but it wasn’t a huge success upfront and a lot of people were sceptical about it. Nevertheless, Geoff Nicholson persisted and that’s why we have Post-It being used pervasively around us (including the sweet love story in the video below).

The key ideas being shared are:

  • Actions speak louder than words
  • Start small to get buy in
  • Get valid use cases and measure benefits to help in your justification
  • Don’t give up
