Go! Stop!

Is your enterprise prepared to speed-up or slow-down if needed?  I recall attending a conference where a presenter from the King County Nevada School District informed the presenter’s panel that the district was opening one new school every two months to meet demand.  The district representative elaborated on the assembly line of builders, contractors, tradespeople, architects, and many others who were building schools much like houses in a residential development.  I always wonder how the district stopped the assembly line when the recession hit the Las Vegas area.  Were they constantly scanning the horizon for data and information that might suggest a slowdown was imminent or was momentum the prevailing force?
