Why Organization's Fail

Organization failure begins at the top. Rotary did not stop growing because people were not interested in joining local Rotary clubs. The number of people joining Rotary clubs proves that. It stopped growing because its leaders assumed it was in the business of supplying humanitarian services rather than in the business of creating Rotarians; they were product oriented instead of member oriented.

Strategic Plan Starting Point!

What is the base upon which to build a District Strategic Plan?” was the major question at the recent Zone 34 Membership Seminar. The attendees decided it was necessary to answer this question before they could begin creating effective plans. First, the RI Code of Policies, 17.010.1 states, “The activities and organization of a Rotary district shall exist solely to help the individual club advance the object of Rotary. . .” Then attendees, all of whom were district leaders, decided that they should treat individual Rotary clubs as customers. Then the attendees concluded that to create an effective plan, it would be wise to define what their customers’ (clubs) needed to accomplishing their objective.
