Awesome “Must-see” video by Gary Hamel. Contains a lot of the wisdom of Vineet Nayar of HCL, who wrote the book “Employees First, Customers Second”.
Btw: have invited Vaneet to Innotribe at Sibos Toronto on Corporate Culture. Hope he accepts.
I’d love to get to a stage where
Innotribe is the place
where you discover
what futures emerge
on the fringe
"Modern” management is one of humanity’s most important inventions, Gary Hamel argues. But it was developed more than a century ago to maximize standardization, specialization, hierarchy, control, and shareholder interests.
While that model delivered an immense contribution to global prosperity, the values driving our most powerful institutions are fundamentally at odds with those of this age—zero-sum thinking, profit-obsession, power, conformance, control, hierarchy, and obedience
don’t stand a chance against community, interdependence, freedom, flexibility, transparency, meritocracy, and self-determination.
