The author of this new and very readable book has a career history that includes senior roles at Google / You Tube and Twitter in EMEA. The premise of this book is simple: we can make work far more accessible and rewarding by adopting a number of simple and easily-implemented techniques.
Which is great and begs the question: if they are so easy, why are all organisations not adopting them, wholesale? After all, making work accessible and rewarding is the holy grail in organisational development and employee engagement circles. There may be many answers to this, but the obvious one is linked to 2 things – corporate culture and the absence of a willingness to try and stick with simple organisational approaches that focus more on individual and team productivity and less on traditional processes.
