"A focus on short term profit taking squashes innovation and creativity because it does not allocate the time and space necessary to breathe life into any vision. Short-term profit taking sucks the oxygen out of the building and snuffs out the ideas required for long-term sustainable competitive advantages before they can ever take root. The incredible ideas we generate without roots will get blown away with the first poor quarterly earnings report. But Jobs knew that great products first germinate, then need time to grow roots and finally must be developed and nurished over a period of time in order to become what can be delivered to the marketplace in a sustainable way."

"Let us stress this point again: in this model individuals with a set of competencies do not belong to a company function. They are available any time that they are not sick or on holiday and this availability is captured by the scheduler and synchronized in a way that maximizes the Throughput the company can generate. Indeed, not ALL the available time of ALL the resources needs to be scheduled, inasmuch as there are many activities that need to be attended to at all times by certain resources, typically shop-floor and very repetitive ones."

Arthur Dahl - excellence from holistic and systemic thinking

Arthur Dahl - excellence from holistic and systemic thinking | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it

"In today’s complex world, we can no longer afford the risks and failures that result from the compartmentalized structure of government, academia, business and most other human activities. A capacity for holistic or systems thinking should be one of the basic goals of education, in complement to whatever specialization is relevant to the natural talents of each and everyone. We may even need to create the specialization of “generalist” able to integrate all the relevant domains of knowledge in a particular management context."
