Brave New Work: Are You Ready to Reinvent Your Organization?

Brave New Work

So, I went out on a limb and just picked up this on Audible in preparations for a road trip. It was a late night road trip, and honestly, I didn’t want the car ride to end. Brave New Work by Aaron Dignan outlines practical ideas on how organizations can “upgrade their organizational operating systems.”

He told some great stories and shared some fun insights. My favorite is the reference he uses to the Simple Sabotage Field Manual published in 1948 by what is now the CIA. In it, section 11 outlines “General Interference with Organizations and Production.” I’m not going to spoil it, but it and this book is a great read and reference for how leaders and coaches can help organizations through change.

With a career in Information Technology that has officially reached drinking age, I have one too many hats in roles from Systems Analyst to Programmer to IT Manager to Programmer to Director. I am a seeker of new ideas and learning new things. My passion has been working with product delivery teams to develop into their own identity and simply build valuable solutions by making great software. I have been applying Lean Agile ideas for a long time and leveraging their underlying practices with both a pragmatic and experimental purpose. At the end of the day, I believe in integrity, hard work, trial-and-error, people, and faith.
