It's time to reinvent management. You can help.

Transcend traditional management trade-offs

“Managers must embrace rather than dodge the need to manage paradox.”

Traditional systems rely on crude, universal policies that favor certain goals at the expense of others. Tomorrow’s systems must encourage healthy competition between opposing objectives and enable frontline employees to dynamically optimize key trade-offs.
