Today is Groundhog Day. You know, if the groundhog sees its shadow, we’re supposed to have six more weeks of winter weather.
But, for this blog, I’m thinking of the 1993 movie Groundhog Day ... the one where Phil Connors (played by Bill Murray) ends up in a time loop, living the same day over and over again.
Groundhog Day doesn’t just affect associations, corporations face the same issues. Here are some quotes from The Next McDonald’s Turnover, Holman W. Jenkins, Jr., column in last weekend’s Wall Street Journal:
- If there’s a lesson for McDonald’s latest troubles, which got CEO Don Thompson fired this week, it’s that every organization keeps doing what works until it no longer works. McDonald’s problems are eminently fixable.
- The easiest part is to stop doing what no longer works.
