“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” – Winston Churchill
If you pay close attention, and if you are reading this you likely are curious, you will notice bold and subtle changes in the ICISF. This new website offers an example, along with the new logo, a new product line of merchandise, a renewed emphasis on membership, and the shift of the World Congress from February to May.
Several other items of news shall come forward in the coming weeks. The changes are part of an overall strategic approach to management that was outlined in the LifeNet article written by CEO Rick Barton last winter. The strength of the plan generates from many years of excellent ICISF work building a Foundation of excellent courses, faculty and instructors around the world.
In the coming weeks you will see new endeavors in updating the “products” with new editions of courses and manuals, new methods of delivery including eBooks and digital communication, and expanded marketing to help instructors and to help people connect with the ICISF.
Change requires analysis and adjustment, revisiting the results followed by more analysis and adjustment. Thoughtful change requires much reflection and hard work. You are worth this effort, so please have patience while we explore new ideas and implement updates and new features. Many of the items described above are works-in-progress, so your feedback is needed and your support is essential.
We invite you to join with us during these exciting times to help make the changes a success as we build an ICISF that will continue to serve people around the world for many years into the future.
