The question came up the other day of what constitutes a prompt response to a problem.
If the matter is important but not urgent, then starting the response process within a couple of weeks may be acceptable.
If the matter is urgent and important then responding within a day may be fine.
But if there is a safety or a major, long-term, and possibly irreversible, threat, then responding in an hour may be too long.
It's important to distinguish between these areas for two reasons: You don't want to be too late in dealing with a lethal threat and you don't want to rush a decision on a matter that is neither lethal nor demanding immediate attention. There is a huge difference between a situation that requires "action now" - as Churchill used to describe many of his directives during the Second World War - and ones where we would be better advised to remember former Secretary of State George P. Schultz's admonition to "Don't just do something, stand there."
