Seen, read, heard this week #1

A new column that will be weekly…or not. Will last..or not. Sometimes I read, hear, see things that are not worth a post but that I feel like sharing like I would do at the cofee machine, around a drink or a lunch…

Heard during a conversation

• “Since they are not provided with the tools they need, some of our employees use Facebook groups to share informations and documents. And when it’s about docs whose addressee is the CEO…”. Anonymous.

• “We dematerialized a 25 steps process. After eliminating from it people whose job was to pick up information and transmit it For Information only 2 steps remained.”. Anonymous.

• “Share value droped…but there are more terrible things in the world”. Franck Riboud (Danone’s CEO) at  Danone Explorers. Was he thinking about other companies that are in a more dangerous situation, or perhaps his thought were still in Bengladesh for this project he just talked about and enlighten Danone’s people face every time they mention it. Perhaps it’s the “dual project” effect that, when times are bad, makes people proud of the way they do business ?

• “managers don’t have time to make their team progress nor to network. Worse, as time passes by, they forget it’s a part of their job and they don’t bring the added value they were hired for”. A consultant / professor.

• “None of our High PotentiaIs want to work for our IT dept”. Anonymous. At first glance it may sound funny, but with a little distance it’s scaring.

• “Most of time, true entrepreneurs are very bad managers and good managers are very bad entrepreneurs. But it’s logical”. A friend.

Seen

• Wikinomics will become a film. It’s called Us Now.

Read

• I’m reading Goldratt’s “The Goal” for the umpteenth time and I still find many precious things in. It also gave me an idea…something I want to explore under the form of a conversation in this blog. Wait and see..
