The Power of Minds at Work
IN THIS SUMMARY
According to Albrecht’s Law, "Intelligent people, when assembled into an organization, will tend toward collective stupidity." This, says the author, is a situation that is all too common throughout business and government. And, though this collective incapacity is normal, it is neither necessary nor inevitable.
The Power of Minds at Work is offered as an intellectual "whack on the head" to help executives and managers face organizational dysfunction, understand it, and come to terms with its causes. But, more importantly, it provides a blueprint for a smarter enterprise. Drawing on a wealth of stories, examples, and experiences garnered from his 25 years as a consultant to businesses worldwide, Albrecht offers a framework for mobilizing all the brainpower of the organization and focusing that brainpower on achieving the organization’s mission.
