If it is 4x faster it would be like planning for 2010 in 1890, if it is 7x faster it would be like planning for 2010 in 1670.”<br /> -Expert on Education Panel, The Aspen Institute, 2007<br />

    50. How to increase your odds of roaring out of the recession from HBR<br />Focus on operational efficiency (smart spending and targeted headcount reduction for efficiency versus across-the-board headcount reductions). <br />Investment in developing new markets (leveraging your product / service mix into expanded markets -- geographic, new segments or niches). <br />Investments in enlarging the asset base. (In professional services, that is training and development and strategic staffing for new opportunities.) I call this placing careful bets on the future. <br />http://www.cpasuccess.com/2010/03/how-to-beat-the-odds-and-roar-out-of-the-recession.html<br />

    54. Are you an untouchable?<br />A Washington lawyer friend recently told me about layoffs at his firm. I asked him who was getting axed. <br />He said it was interesting: lawyers who were used to just showing up and having work handed to them were the first to go because with the bursting of the credit bubble, that flow of work just isn’t there. <br />But those who have the ability to imagine new services, new opportunities and new ways to recruit work were being retained. They are the new untouchables.<br />
    55. Are you indispensable?<br />Imagine an organization with an employee who can accurately see the truth, understand the situation, and understand the potential outcomes of various decisions. And now imagine that this person is also able to make something happen.<br />This is our leader, our marketer, our linchpin!<br />
