I did some writing a while back on the topic of “systems.” Here’s some of what I wrote. I had found an article that made me say “Hmmmm …”
“Teaching has the potential to shift someone’s thinking, but systems have the potential to shift behaviors.”
Why did it make me say, “Hmmmm?”
I realized that despite how much I am passionate about “systems thinking” and its importance to good leadership, I’ve never directly explained “why” it’s so critical. Sure, I’ve written thousands of words on building a strong infrastructure and implementing/improving systems, processes, and methods; but for what reason?
The quote nails it! Teaching makes people think, but systems help people change.
(Check out the full post HERE).
In the church, especially the large church, implementing “people systems” requires great tools. Church Management Software (CMS) is the most critical of these tools.
Take a look at this brief video message …
The best CMS out there is provided by Church Community Builder. We’ve been a “CCB church” since late 2011, and I can tell you we have no intention to change that!
