This image, from Kathy Sierra's blog, sums it up for me:
Hey Badge, I stumbled across this previously - can't recall where so thanks for the reminder.Great illustration of the huge problem of the corporation.Those of us who operate in hierarchies and silos have a tendancy to reductionism.Even the illustration reveals our desperation for a binary decision. We reduce to one type of person OR the other. The reality is rather more complex - I'd guess - that we're all combinations of the two. Simple hierarchical and silo-d structures can't cope with that, so you get pigeon-holed as one or the other.And that reductionism means the guys that sounds smart that isn't gets listened too more often.I'm doing a lot of thinking about this and how it impacts corporations, and how we might improve it, right now (could you guess?)So if you have thoughts about that, you know where to find me!
