038 – Innovate the Factory

Innovate the Factory with David Burkus

David Burkus, one of Thinkers50’s “emerging thought leaders most likely to shape the future of business” and the bestselling author behind The Myth of Creativity, is back with a groundbreaking new book, Under New Management: How Leading Organizations are Upending Business as Usual. His book is overflowing with ideas that at first glance may seem counterintuitive, but have the potential to revolutionize our organizations by replacing outdated policies. While we don’t have time to get into all of the great disruptive ideas in the book, we do touch on:

  • Reform around established best practices in the workplace—and why they’re built for the wrong model
  • Why great leaders innovate the factory, not the products
  • Unpacking employee compensation and why some organizations are so guarded about salaries
  • The importance of offering sabbaticals and the unexpected way it can benefit an organization

It’s time to upend business as usual and we think this 40 minute discussion with David Burkus will inspire you to do just that.
