Most people would agree that many organizations today are too stiff, too slow and too disconnected to do well in the complex world we live in now.
Many large organizations have placed their bet on a new technology platform that will connect all their people's work. Some think that real change can only come from the bottom up. Many feel that any form of hierarchy is outdated. Some talk about culture but are not clear about what this means.
Few are making any progress. So what is the better way to go?
Rather than answer this question with yet another theory or hope, I called on Jon Froda of Podio, a founder of the platform, to ask him abut how things work at Podio. For here is an organization that eats what it sells.
And what did I find? It's all about the values and the culture of the few people at the top.
