What never goes out of style is a commitment to “wider selection, lower prices and fast, reliable delivery.”. Obsess over customers. Be willing to be misunderstood for long periods of time. Bezos tends to take a long-term view on innovations that don’t pay off right away. Work to charge less.

    One budding approach that may help unify your team, your business unit and your organization to ultimately enrich and enhance your corporate culture, such that all employees feel as though they are moving forward as a connected group, is through the deployment and utilisation of an internal enterprise-wide micro-blogging platform. When micro-blogging is brought to fruition inside the organization, safely tucked within the corporate firewalls, the connection can be extremely powerful.

When an organization (like The Beatles ) becomes too large or perhaps too arrogant, forgetting what it was like when they were in fact collaborative, caring, authentic, receptive and enriching, they quickly develop silo-like behaviours.

    [Organization] "Organization Effectiveness Simulator" (Booz&Co)
    Do you work for the " Overmanaged Organization "? The Passive-Aggressive organization ? Which organization " has scores of smart, motivated, and talented people, but they rarely pull in the same direction at the same time"?

    [Organization] Reflections on the Stoos Gathering | Unmanagement
    Ten days ago I flew to Switzerland for a mountaintop retreat with twenty thought leaders from around the world to ponder better ways to manage organizations. People in sustainable organizations focus on doing this better and better, forever delivering more value to their customers.

    For the last decade I have examined and applied social network analysis in and across organizations, for example in large professional firms , technology purchase decision-making , high-performance personal networks , and other applications. The more time you spend with the analysis of social networks in organizations and those firms that have applied the techniques, the more evident the power of these approaches. However this is often difficult in large, complex organizations.

    Organizations that promote awareness, transparency and openness through appropriate ways to coordinate, collaborate and cooperate have a better chance of understanding complexity. The coherent organization is our way of creating a framework to look at organizational performance.
