Issue 164 - 01 | The Speed Trap: When Taking Your Time (Really) Matters

By Tom Peters
Published May 16, 2018 2:00 p.m.
“Speed-for-speed’s-sake is about the most counterproductive* approach imaginable. (*I use counterproductive because it’s impolite to use “stupid”—which is what I really believe.)

While we must indeed evolve and experiment rapidly, the process of getting things done (especially radical-ish things that upset apple carts) is all about people. And working with people to get those interesting things done effectively, well, takes time, in fact lots of time.”
