Safe Driving for Fast Companies

Mon, 2015-02-16 16:21

Written by Professor Estelle Metayer

MONTREAL – In a car, blind spots are the areas of the road that the rearview and side-view mirrors do not show. A driver must constantly be aware of them – and of the potentially deadly perils they can conceal. Businesses can have blind spots, too – and they can be equally costly, causing companies to overinvest in risky ventures or fail to take advantage of emerging opportunities. Successful leaders are careful to identify their company's blind spots and introduce mechanisms to ensure that no harm will come from them.
