“The way forward is
paradoxically to look not
ahead, but to look around”
John Seely Brown, Social Life of Information
@ADRIANAGIRDLER | @JASONLITTLE | #TOAGILE2017

treat your employees right, guess what?
Your customers come back, and that
makes your shareholders happy. Start
with employees and the rest follows
from that.

I make a point of talking to clients nearly

3. Organize your stickies on your table in these columns:

Tangible
