Greg McKeown - Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less
Tuesday, Mar 3 2015, 17:00 GMT

Have you ever felt motion sickness instead of momentum? Felt stretched too thin? Overworked and underutilized? Do you say “yes” simply to please the other person and then quickly resent it? Felt as if you were making a millimeter of progress while moving in a million different directions?

Greg McKeown offers a way of thinking for discerning what is essential, eliminating what is not, and removing obstacles in order to make execution as effortless as possible. The disciplined pursuit of less (but better) outlines how to break through to the next level of contribution. This is the way of the Essentialist. It’s about getting more done in less time—and getting only the right things done.
Mike Walsh - Designing Your Business for the 21st Century
Tuesday, May 19 2015, 16:00 BST

The companies that thrive in the near future will be the ones that not only embrace change but are the first to break the rules. If you could start with a clean sheet of paper, how would you design your company? Should your youngest staff member be making coffee or running your R&D team? Is Big Data something for your IT department to worry about, or a weapon to be wielded by your management team? Do you ban social networks or use them to collaborate more effectively?

According to Mike Walsh, most companies are simply not designed to survive. They become successful on the basis of one big idea or breakthrough product. That early success then becomes a rigid code, and as customer habits and markets change, many fail to see that everything that made them successful is exactly what will destroy them later.
Lisa Bodell - End the Status Quo, Start an Innovation Revolution
Tuesday, Jun 9 2015, 17:00 BST

Progress doesn’t come from standing still. However, in the ever-changing world of business, many of us have become resistant to change because we’ve grown tired of it or we’ve learned it can be difficult. We’ve become overly focused on inside processes and procedures, leaving too little time for big-picture thinking and value-added work. This has led to the rise of two evils: complexity and complacency.

Stuck in the land of status quo, we’ve forgotten how to think differently, and lack the simple tools to solve problems creatively. The very structures put in place to help organizations grow are now holding us back, so it’s time to end the status quo. This is a call to arms: to start a revolution in how we think and how we work.
