"Entrepreneurial businesses favour open-mindedness. They favour people whose optimism prompts them to prepare for many possible futures simply for the fun of it." Richard Branson
A small business must be flexible. If your business is too rigid, it will fail.
Rapid changes will take place, in technology and also in the economy, which means that only organizations that are flexible so that they can adapt to these changes will be successful, giving them a massive advantage over more rigid organizations.
You should seek to promote flexibility in your organization. You can do this by encouraging your employees to find new ways of doing business that is better. You also need to be brave enough to weed out policies that don't work because there are benefits that come with promoting flexibility in your organization.
