How work really gets done


Published on

I designed this presentation as a thought starter for groups of people who believe work gets done via well defined rules, hierarchies and the ability to refer to the best practice database. This presentation challenges all that and encourages the audience to rethink how work really gets done.

This is an "in person presentation". I'm happy to share the hand out notes as well if anyone is interested.

I'm from Melbourne, Australia.
