Taking Stock and Making Choices: Working from home and other such stuff

ID Reflections

Mostly, business as usual at work and crisis situations at home took my time and attention.

Working smarter is the key to sustainability and continuous improvement. Knowledge work and learning to work smarter are becoming indistinguishable. The accelerating rate of change in business forces everyone in every organization to make a choice: learn while you work or become obsolete.
