Imagining the Future

The Mount has existed since 1808, and will continue in its mission both throughout this period and after. As we reimagine how we work, we will discover new practices and habits, gifts and challenges, and we will experience profoundly the importance of the human connections that support us as we strive for excellence in all that we do.

Tip: Identify ways to measure performance

After this period is over, this data will allow you to reflect on what worked, what didn't, and why. The data will also prepare you in advance to answer the inevitable question once this challenging period has passed, “Why don't we do this all the time?” Depending upon the outcomes, you may decide to continue certain aspects of the flexible response permanently.

For example, perhaps you cut business travel by 25% and substitute video conferencing. You determine afterward that about 80% of those meetings were equally as effective virtually. Therefore, a 20% decrease in business travel will continue, but this time as part of an overall sustainability strategy to cut carbon emissions.

So, prepare for excellence. Keep track of what works and what doesn’t. Note the improvised shifts that might lead to more permanent improvements. We are in a learning environment. Let’s learn together.
