Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Brave New Work written and read by Aaron Dignan. 

The way we work is broken. It takes forever to get anything done. Meetings and emails are incessant. Bureaucracy stifles talent and creativity. After decades of management theory and multiple waves of technological and societal change, is this really the best we can do?

Aaron Dignan teaches companies how to eliminate red tape, tap in to collective intelligence and rethink long-held traditions that no longer make sense. In Brave New Work, he shows you how to revolutionize the way your company works forever. 

Using stories from companies at the cutting edge of organizational transformation, Brave New Work will show you how to transform your team, department and business from the inside out, making work more adaptable, abundant and human. It is packed with new tactics and tips for updating your company's operating system: the simple rules and assumptions so deeply embedded that you don't even think to question them. Learn how to reignite passion and energy throughout your organization and to build a company that runs itself.

Much needed guide to innovating the way we work

I have written so many notes about how to take the lessons from the book and apply them in my context. It is at once, big picture and theoretical and practical in its approach.
