Knowledgework Bug #0


Western culture has a fundamental problem that makes healthy, effective workplaces, capable of sustainably delivering value, almost impossible.

We know intuitively and from experience that we work better in complex interdependent tasks with people we know and trust, but we are not prepared to spend the effort, time, and money to ensure that such relationships are built and maintained. This is observable repeatedly to varying extents in nearly all organisations in Europe and the US. It’s an endemic cultural norm.

Every organisational disfunction stems from this bug.

From this talk, the audience will be able to:

  • Identify this bug
  • Understand its impacts
  • Start to fight it, moving from the table stakes of simply safe work environments to joyful ones.
