“It is not necessary to change.  Survival is not mandatory.” 

~W. Edwards Deming

I love this quote, because it reflects the necessity of change to stay relevant, but also our inherent reluctance to take that step forward.  At The Miles Foundation this past year, we’ve certainly pushed ourselves to implement changes we believe will help propel us forward and build stronger partnerships – even when it has felt a little uncomfortable.
