ZOMBIES!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you ever seen a zombie movie? You know.. The one where the zombie is chasing the chick and he's lost both legs and arms and somehow keeps going after her. It seems nothing can stop this beast no matter how ugly or imperfect it is. It's this sign of total failure, yet somehow it still keeps moving forward toward its goal. It scares you out of your whits, yet, you know in the end this thing will fail. It fails for one simple reason. It's a zombie. Zombie's don't win. Nothing can stop them, yet they fail. No matter how many people they eat, no matter how far they travel, no matter how close to their goal they get, they fail. Maybe it's just nature. Zombie's were not built to be winners. They were built to fail. Their entire foundation is built in failure. They start off dead!

Unfortunately, there are a lot of companies out there that look like zombies. You may not be able to notice it on the surface. They may not have rotting flesh and missing limbs, but they are crawling along.... somehow continuing to move forward. It seems nothing can stop them, yet, inevitably, they fail. My suggestion. Run from these companies like you would run from a limbless zombie that is trying to eat your brains! If you get involved in one of these "businesses" get out. If you run one of these "businesses" repent and change your ways.

Signs of a ZOMBIE business
  1. No solid procedures or documentation
  2. No solid policy structure or documentation
  3. Emotional management (management that makes decision based on mood or feeling)
  4. Low employee morale
  5. Poor Project Management structure and practices
  6. Secretive upper management
  7. Immoral business practices
  8. Broken promises from management to employees or clients
The list could go on and on, but I think you get the point. If you or someone you know is involved in this type of "business", heed my warning. It may seem that nothing can stop it, but it will fail. It's a zombie. Zombie's were not built to be winners. They were built to fail. Their entire foundation is built in failure. They start off dead! It will be dead before the credits roll.
