The business world is full of well-known axioms that seek to convey timeless wisdom, including old favorites like, “Work Smarter, Not Harder” or “Do More with Less.”
During times of prosperity, it’s easy to dismiss such ideas as cliched and trite. Yet today, in the face of the widespread business crises created by the COVID-19 pandemic, this kind of advice takes on a new urgency. In the hospitality industry, doing “more with less,” has morphed into “Do Something with Nothing.”
So how, exactly, do we work “smarter” today? We need a more intelligent way to do business.
Intelligence is described as the capacity to absorb, process and contextualize knowledge and derive conclusions. It also refers to the raw data or knowledge itself. No matter how we define it, access to intelligence, both data and analysis, is critical when making decisions or solving problems. That’s especially true in light of the unprecedented challenges facing the hospitality industry today.
