Working smarter

Jay Cross

Imbed what we know about learning theory into how people work, and working smarter is the result. Working smarter draws ideas from design thinking, network optimization, brain science, user experience design, learning theory, organizational development, social business, technology, collaboration, web 2.0 patterns, social psychology, value network analysis, anthropology, complexity theory, and more.
