ABSTRACT
The article offers tips for companies on avoiding complacency after becoming successful. Companies who have reached success tend to lose their sense of urgency, get proud, and feel confident they would always be on top. However, in order to sustain success, managers should not be complacent and comfortable. It is important to be fresh and relevant always, the author says. He also suggests continuous demand for new approaches on proven processes. He adds that it is essential to let every employee know where the company is going and how it is doing.
