“The greatest danger in times of turbulence is not the turbulence, it is to act with yesterday’s logic.”

Peter Drucker

The more complicated the organization, the more difficult it is to understand what is really happening within and for the customer. Perhaps it’s time to simplify our approach and focus on cooperation and collaboration?

More than 2 million people have watched Yves Morieux’s Ted Talk; How too many rules at work keep you from getting things done. I invite you to watch and consider the key message and simplicity of cooperation and how this principal can cut through complexity, cost and a disengaged workforce.

“Modern work — from waiting tables to crunching numbers to designing products — is about solving brand-new problems every day, flexibly and collaboratively. But as Yves Morieux shows in this insightful talk, too often, an overload of rules, processes and metrics keeps us from doing our best work together. Meet the new frontier of productivity: cooperation.” (Ted July 2015)
