By Paul McNamara | April 5, 2020

The Covid-19 pandemic has been a huge disruption, but if we are honest it has already shown us how unprepared we are to react to quickly changing events effectively.  This capability to adapt is a competitive necessity today with or without the pandemic.  To compete in the 4th Industrial Revolution requires resilience and speed and…

Is Your Team Ready, Willing and Able to Make The Changes Required to Win?

By Paul McNamara | March 18, 2020

In the asset management game, most solutions are focused on technology often at the exclusion of the asset management team and their customers.  Just as the musician’s skill has a huge impact on the musical performance, such is also the case with asset management.  It doesn’t mean that tools aren’t important, they are, but by…

Getting Resilient in a Time of Crisis

By Paul McNamara | March 15, 2020

Our situation has changed meaning we now have new threats (the virus and getting sick) and new obligations (hygiene and physical distancing) required to help us take care of those threats. At the same time, none of the threats or obligations we had before have been relieved. Our organizations still must move with speed and…

Can Your Suppliers Unwittingly Spoil Your Culture Change Efforts? Beware, Bad Apples!

By Paul McNamara | December 3, 2019

Culture Can Keep Costs Low… when that culture is effective for dealing with the situations members of the culture confront on a daily basis.

“Good Intentions” without Capability is a Costly Trap. An Asset Management Example.

By Paul McNamara | November 24, 2019

The Good Intentions Trap is Costly If achieving a big result looks too easy, it probably is and will probably be a costly venture.  It is a trap we are all vulnerable to when we don’t understand all of the underlying mechanics required to produce an outcome in a given set of circumstances. We are…

Are Your Metrics Complete? Do They Trigger Effective Behaviors and Results?

By Paul McNamara | November 9, 2019

Asset Management Metrics are very important to success.  I won’t say the most important though, because a number without a narrative that gives it meaning, relevance, and value might as well not exist. It won’t produce any change in direction or focus. If you don’t have a purpose, by definition they aren’t complete They are…
