LA CULTURA SI PUO’ ACCOMODARE. IL COMMERCIO NO.

Poltroncine, sedie, divanetti e affini all’interno delle librerie. E’ una profonda ed ingiusta contraddizione.

Comprereste un paio di mutande che sono state provate da un centinaio di clienti? Vi prendereste carico di comprare (a costo pieno, si intende) un indumento carico degli afrori altrui? E anche ammesso che sia così, non chiedereste almeno uno sconto a titolo di rimborso per il servizio lavanderia?

BE LIKE WATER MY FRIEND. A BRUCE LEE APPROACH TO CORPORATE PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT

‘Don’t get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water.
You must be shapeless, formless, like water.
When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle.
When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot.

All these processes and actors (with as many needs) are involved in the operation of a single system, generating a complexity that somehow has to be managed. Leggi tutto “IN CASE OF FIRE BREAK GLASS: WHEN YOU MIGHT NEED TO HIRE A SINGLE SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR – PART I”
