If you can’t explain it to your grandmother, forget it. - Luc Galoppin
Traditional Economy Trade-offs
As we are witnessing the end of the Industrial Revolution, we discover that leadership and workplace
dynamics are no longer hierarchical. That game is over. We need to take into account of the fact that
the internet is fundamentally changing the DNA of workplace dynamics.
Creative concepts such as empowerment and co-creation may be fun, but they don’t bring home the
bacon. This trade-off of the traditional economy is demonstrated here.
In fact, the compliance to strict rules and procedures was the shortest path to productivity. Without
any doubt, carrot-and-stick leadership is the best way to get things done in a predictable economy
based on scarcity and competition.
But when the world changes, the rules change. And if you insist on playing today’s games by
yesterday’s rules, you’re stuck.
