Developing creative solutions to complex challenges
Yves Morieux from BCG (The Boston Consulting Group) is well-known for challenging many of ‘our’ organisational assumptions about the traditional pillars of management, e.g. ‘hard’ and ‘soft’.
Watch Yves’ Ted Talk ‘As work gets more complex, 6 rules to simplify’ (12:01 min).
This is an entertaining and enjoyable presentation where he offers six rules for ‘smart simplicity’. The basis of this is creating an environment in which employees can work with one another to develop creative solutions to complex challenges, the first rule being: ‘Understand what your colleagues actually do’.
How could we build the six rules into our contract management processes? How would our lives be different?
