Grouping Of Star Players

Big companies select and prioritize a few roles that are business critical and assign their top, A-grade talent into them. The rest of their roles do not have many star players.

The way a team is constructed from the beginning, and how many star players are stacked together matters a lot, especially for the crucial projects.

Organizational Drag

  • Many managers replace judgements with processes and try to escape the fallout of bad decisions.
  • Companies also follow outdated processes that are not discarded by senior management.
  • This result is organizational drag, wasted time and loss of productivity, costing the economy over USD 3 Trillion each year.

Example: Expense management is essentially based on distrust, as there are audits, limits, documentation and extensive tracking of employees. This entire process can be simply eliminated and employees can be trusted with managing expenses themselves, like Netflix does.

  • Poor leadership costs many companies more than a billion dollars every year.
  • Inspired teams deliver 125 percent more than a satisfied one.
  • Big Tech focuses on collective talent, because individual talent usually isn’t enough to turn the tables.
  • It does not matter what an individual does if the work is the opposite of how the organization works.
  • Simply put, companies that inspire employees perform exceedingly well.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
