A large organisation with highly motivated teams with their own individual objectives. Opportunities for redevelopment or product improvement, but not put into action because they conflict with one another. For example, there is a good business case for investment in improving the physical condition or appearance, but there is also an opportunity to redevelop the site to a different use. You could extend the site to increase trading space, but that would mean possible cannibalisation of business at the site down the road. You could sell or exit the site as a going concern or assignment and open a new branch in a better location.
Analysis paralysis. There are too many options. And each scenario has a knock-on effect on the plan for another location. Getting to an answer requires a clear picture of the objectives, all of the options, all relevant attributes for all properties and all programmes and activity across departments. As a result, big opportunities are left dormant. Sometimes a decision gets made just to take some action, and the biggest opportunity is made unviable as a result.
