Innovative Thinking, Using Standards, Creates Ubiquity
Although ubiquity may not be the most exciting concept, it is the goal. It means that your product is reliable, high quality, and valuable – which keeps your clients coming back. You want your product to be the go-to. Being commonplace doesn’t sound great, but it’s right where you want to be.
So how do we achieve ubiquity?
Innovative Thinking + Standards
Innovative thinking does everything from putting cool products on the shelves to solving tricky business problems in unexpected ways. It is creative and exciting, and everybody loves it.
Meeting standards, on the other hand, puts us right back in the box. Formulas, procedures, rules, and requirements – not the fun stuff. Meeting standards means staying inside the lines instead of going above and beyond. It is restrictive and boring, and everybody hates it.
Even though we may feel differently about the two, applied correctly, they both have their place in creating success.

People are the source of innovation. Processes are your way of doing business. The Programs you have in place foster the ubiquity of your output. Pay attention to your People, Processes, and Programs. You will quickly have an organization that improves on its own.
