"...executives at organizations that are experimenting with more participatory modes of strategy development cite two major benefits.


One is improving the quality of strategy by pulling in diverse and detailed frontline perspectives that are typically overlooked but can make the resulting plans more insightful and actionable.

4 Ways to Change Organizational Perspective on Customer Experience

4 Ways to Change Organizational Perspective on Customer Experience | Management - Leadership | Scoop.it

Every single company’s success is dependent on lots of little things going well. If each individual thinks of how he or she is responsible JUST to the department (or organization or division), the customer will suffer.


Don’t let your people speak in those terms. If you look around and realize your employees are really just employees of their departments, it’s time for a change in the organizational perspective on customer experience.

Why Google Axed Its '20% Time' Motivational Policy

Why Google Axed Its '20% Time' Motivational Policy | Management - Leadership | Scoop.it

"The policy that gave rise to some of Google's most iconic products--Gmail, Google Reader, Google Talk, and more--is being axed. Employees previously used the search giant's 20% time perk to work on side projects one day a week. It's a policy that's taken off in Silicon Valley, with other companies following suit for out-of-the-box ideas. The 20% policy, which used to apply to all employees, had narrowed in scope over the years. Even before its removal, engineers had to seek approval from management, who for the sake of productivity were discouraged from green-lighting independent projects." | by Alice Truong
