Summary
Something strange is happening in our knowledge economy - organisations everywhere are encouraging smart people to do stupid things. At its extremes, this kind of systematic stupidity can be catastrophic - witness the institutional blindness in financial services that led to the crisis of 2008. But we can all relate to more everyday examples of losing touch with the need to question the dubious and criticise the absurd, from unsustainable management fads or the cult of leadership and strategy through to an over-reliance on brand and image. This title tackles head-on the pros and cons of a culture of questioning and challenge in the workplace. Harmony and action at all costs can be attractive and can also bring short-term benefits
