Innovative Action by Employees

  1. 1.
    Create Customer Delight
    Creating an impression that exceeds expectations leads to real customer satisfaction. Think of everyone you meet as a customer, and always exceed expectations.
  2. 2.
    Outline the Ideal
    For major change, big ideals are essential. Let’s not be small, but set up a large model to move towards in the future.
  3. 3.
    Think Deeply
    If you act only after being told to, you won’t come up with good ideas. Think faster than others: keep thinking, and think deeply.
  4. 4.
    Act Quickly
    No matter how good the idea, it begins to lose freshness the moment it is created. To meet the newest needs, let’s shape the concept while it’s fresh.
  5. 5.
    Fail Early
    It’s important not just to minimize loss due to failure, but from it also gain the hints for success. Learn from failure, make a course correction and move on to the next success!
  6. 6.
    Find it Yourself
    The current condition, past successes and even your boss’s instructions are not always the correct choice. Search and discover your own answers.
  7. 7.
    Get it Done
    Success will only come to those who keep on going until the job is done. Think of how you can do it and the method of getting there, and make it happen.
  8. 8.
    Join Together
    Join Together
    Ideas are refined by thinking with multiple perspectives, rather than as just one person. Involving the people around you brings with it a synergistic effect.
