I watched this video from Eddie Obeng who gave a talk at the TED global 2012 on Smart Failure For A Fast Changing World and many things he says, in the talk, I have encountered working within both small and larger companies. I particularly like his example of ‘Turbulence’
He highlights that traditional business have an issue in changing rules quickly and it’s something that inherently comes from the leadership and management of the company as that ethos is pushed down. I wish I had a pound for the number of times I’ve heard of companies talk about being creative but then implementing a process which is the total opposite for the fear of doing something different and doing it wrong. Old school management techniques are becoming dated and being able to change quickly in today’s society and industry is an absolute must.
