If you don´t know what the destination is, then any path WON´T do


I read in the "Six Sigma Handbook" something that catches my attention. While they discuss about methods to achive "goals and necessary conditions" (p. 121), the authors state than in most cases this assumption is "undoubtedly valid":

If you don´t know what the destination is, then any path will do.

It may very well be that the organization has lost its focus or it actually never quite had it, however, it is safe to assume that any organization has an implicit goal, whether the owners are aware of it or not.
If that is the case, then the correct path will be that one that leads to the proper, explicit definition of the organizational purpose, and the strategy that follows.

Hence, any path will not do.
