Today’s interview is with Aaron Dignan, founder of The Ready, an organization design and transformation firm, and author of a new book: Brave New Work: Are You Ready to Reinvent Your Organization? Aaron joins me today to talk about the book, the core problem it is trying to address, the idea of organizational debt, what’s stopping you from doing the best work of your life and some of the biggest problems they have faced in helping firms transform the way they work.
This interview follows on from my recent interview – Analytics isn’t something you buy, it is something that you do – Interview with Larry Skowronek of NICE – and is number 296 in the series of interviews with authors and business leaders that are doing great things, providing valuable insights, helping businesses innovate and delivering great service and experience to both their customers and their employees.
