Enterprise essential – be a train, not an octopus

The octopus organisation drifts with the funding tide, extending a tentacle in whatever direction will attract a grant – environment, youth work, sport.

The train-like organisation knows where it’s going. With its destination up ahead, all resources pulled in – funds, people, information – fuel the journey. Everyone is heading in the same direction; the organisation is in the driving seat controlling the speed.
