Our topic today is why a company needs a sense of urgency. Before you start calculating your production time or revising your marketing strategy; the point we want to make today is do you know your customer and what they need?


So many people equate the word urgency with speed. But we mean it to be are you on track with your market and its needs. Today we discuss how to know when you are on track and have a genuine interest in helping your customers.

Why urgency doesn’t mean “speedup.”

How time is part of this team discussion.

Why a team would lose or never have a sense of urgency.
