gility is defined as the ability to change your body's
position efficiently. It requires a combination of
balance, coordination, speed, reflexes, strength and endurance.
The same is true for your business. Long-term business
survival means responding rapidly to changes without losing
momentum or vision. Business agility requires adaptability,
flexibility and balance. If you're busy providing PPE while
dealing with a backlog of boat projects, some days you may
feel agile, and some days you may just feel exhausted.
This issue is filled with stories to help you stay light on your
feet. "NECPA: A Century of Success" offers agility lessons
from three Northeast canvas companies which have survived
for a century and continue to thrive. "Into the Future"
discusses how to balance the upsides and challenges of adding
automation to your shop to enhance your flexibility.
Leo Pohlmann, Uncharted Marine Canvas, discusses how to
make increasingly popular cockpit covers more user-friendly.
Terri Madden, Sand Sea & Air Interiors, gives her insights about
how to ensure your business stays viable during challenging
times, and business coach Madeleine MacRae provides nuts and
bolts advice about marketing and selling during a pandemic.
While balance, flexibility and adaptability are key to remaining
agile, knowledge and hard work are the bedrock of any successful
business. As Bruce Lee, martial arts expert and someone who knows
something about agility said, "What you lack in flexibility and agility
you must make up with knowledge and constant practice." I wish
you a summer of good health, safety and
success. I also hope you'll continue to take
advantage of IFAI's COVID-19 Resource
Center at www.ifai.com/covid-19/ and
by visiting www.marinefabricatormag.
com for frequent updates. IFAI continues
to work hard to remain agile in the face
of changing circumstances. Here's to all
of us finding balance and staying light on
our feet to meet the challenges ahead.
