- Best: highest quality, standing (at a point in time, place and context)
- Practice: a habit or custom (noun) or to do repeatedly to acquire proficiency
Admittedly, and importantly, there are things to learn from others successes and failures. But one of the big mistakes companies make isadopting “best practices” instead of adapting them (to their own culture).
Companies will succeed in the 21st century by out [best] practicing their competition to exceed their customers’ and employees’ needs - by turning practice into a verb instead of a noun.
Those who develop a core competency in experimenting, prototyping, learning, applying, iterating – from success AND failure, will be the ones who provide the most meaningful, valuable offerings to customers and employees.
That’s what I call practicing! And that’s not an oxymoron.
What can you start being the best at practicing tomorrow?
