Wikipedia describes best practice as “a method or technique that has been generally accepted as superior to any alternatives because it produces results that are superior to those achieved by other means or because it has become a standard way of doing things.”
 
Organizations use best practice to acquire knowledge, improve efficiency and enable better decision making. But how far can best practice take your organization? 
Not every best practice can be best for your organization. In a rapidly changing environment, copying best practices can limit innovation, yet innovation provides a firm competitive advantage to organizations. 
Using best practice has its merits but if your organization focuses solemnly on best practices to make decisions, it may soon be defined by other innovations and become a failure statistic.

All best practices have been invented by people who used their imagination to question the status quo As a matter of fact, researches have shown that creative people are able to manage effectively uncertainties because they can easily adopt their thinking, create business models that have no precedent, and provide positive results.
 
As you begin a new week, learn to solve problems by being creative, experiment with new ideas and plan your result-oriented goals.
