Last week our rollover result was in a down pit, we came up with solutions and effort to fix the problems that was shown through the reports and made estimates and decisions that we thought it will turn out to give us a good result. The truth is it was't good enough. More to it, we are lacking the conceptual skill ( Katz, 1955).
We were overwhelmed by the problems that was on the surface and neglect the potential problems. The problem we were focusing on was the products that weren't able to sell due to low quality. We were focused on raising our quality and came up with launching new products to cover up our loses. They sound pretty legit and straightforward, yet, our rollover result was significantly low. The solution and result for our strategy is like 'trying to cover up a hole by digging up another one'. I revisited the previous reading and identified this problem as the lack of conceptual skill. We are lacking the ability and skill to see the enterprise as a whole, as a collective group, we are very much isolated and limited to our own field and understanding, in a way when we explain our decisions and research to others, we are kind of forcing our opinion onto theirs and thus limiting the potential of success. Like my title suggests, the mist is the result of lacking of conceptual skill, we need to pay much more attention to various functions of the organization and extend our visions and recognize the importance of other people idea and opinion to make things better (Katz, 1955).
Like I have suggest above, lacking conceptual skill may not be the potential solution and explanation to what is happening. I have to illustrate my ideas to my team and without limiting their ideas and knowledge to generate a strategy all together as a whole.
