mission, Jim, should you decide to accept it…”
The great TV show MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE started each show
with these words and chronicled how Jim Phelps, leader of the Impossible
Mission Force, somehow found a way to accomplish tasks many felt were
impossible. He did it by building a
great team of people, each using their skills and talents and working
effectively together to get the job done. We face a seemingly “impossible” mission today
in the utilities industry as well as we deal with expanding regulations, shrinking
revenues, aging infrastructure, customer opposition to rate increases and a
largely disengaged workforce. Yet, by
applying the same lessons Jim Phelps used to accomplish his “impossible
missions”, we can learn ways to accomplish the impossible missions we face here
in the utility industry. Join us as we
follow a typical episode of M:I and learn how each of us can become the “Jim
Phelps” of our own Impossible Utility Missions Force!
Relevance of the Topic:
successful utility operations has never been more of a challenge. Yet the management principles needed to lead
in these trying times are no different than they have ever been. These lessons, packaged within memorable
analogies and anecdotes, continue to serve managers well in the “new normal” as
long as they are actually remembered.
