Scarcity mentality in people is very dangerous. And if applied in organizations, it is doubly lethal.
It can cause organizations to be reactive, defensive, and insecure, hoarding the little asset they have thinking that it would protect them from the ravages of change.
With little that they have, they are afraid to invest in strengthening their core and increasing their value, thereby getting stuck in diminishing returns.
They are not ready to innovate, experiment, take prudent risks, change anything substantial because they are afraid to lose.
Being afraid to lose instead of going for the win is what separates the winning organizations from those that have decided to stay behind and wait.
