UM: Entrepreneurs

On his director’s blog for UM’s Center for Entrepreneurship, Thomas Zurbuchen writes about the mystery of slow UM maintenance trucks: ”I have one big worry that I have not been able to confirm. The drivers are moving at a slow speed because they are not looking forward to their day’s work. Besides being out of work, this is pretty much the worst case for every employee….The mystery of slow maintenance trucks therefore brings up one of the most relevant questions for each entrepreneur. How do we motivate our employees, and especially our support personnel, who are often many layers removed from the overall mission of our organization?” [Source]
