There is so much excitement in the world these days it is becoming harder and harder to be a kid. We got wars, famine, abuse, many negative events and forces affecting the world we live in. Whether it is a country or a company, all groups come down to the people that make them up.
If people knew more about others, it would be much easier for dealings between the various groups in the world. Whatever the group is, it is important to set standards. If people know what the standard is, then we can judge whether or not our coworkers or fellow countrymen are keeping those standards.
In November 2005, we were thinking of some way to describe the standard mode of operations for people at AINEO. We were able to come up with three words that summarize who we are and what we do. We are bright, quick, and flexible. In other words, we are BQF.
Bright, in the fact that we are smart, and able to bring great solutions to the table for virtually any issue. But also bright in the way we deal with others as we are happy, hard-working, and ready to jump in as needed. In a couple word radiant and smart. These are the type of people I like working with. How about you?
Quick, in that we are responsive, speedy, and efficient. We are not afraid to get our hands wet and get the job done. It is so easy to keep talking about the job, the details of the job, and what you are thinking to do. Why not just do it? The big difference between a successful sales person and a not so successful sales person is execution. Quickly executing is one key to success.
Flexibility is probably the most needed trait in both the business world and the international community. If we have a task to build a datacenter, you have to build the datacenter. If a government restriction doesnâ€™t allow you use a certain material, then be open-minded enough to find a different material. Part of the reason we started Aineo is because we so many engineering companies that were so inflexible. When the customer would ask them if they could do this or that with a certain system, the engineerâ€™s response was almost always the same. â€œOh, that will be expensive to implementâ€, or â€œthe system canâ€™t do thatâ€. The AINEO response is always, â€œwell, we canâ€™t implement that exactly like that but here are a couple of other ideasâ€¦ What do you think?â€
Being BQF is a must for being a part of AINEO of this special team. When we interview people who want to join AINEO, deal with others, but most importantly deal with our customers we always keep BQF as our standard.
I could have never imagined how three words could mean so much to our team. We have got the best team that we have ever had at AINEO and it is growing. We are coming up on our 10th year. This 9th year has been our best year ever all around.
Now I hope that brightness, quickness, and flexibility will not only be a standard for our company and customers but something that will affect people that we deal with. Wouldnâ€™t it be great to see people bright, quick, and flexible in dealing with each other? The world would be a better place.
