Connecting Functions

The 20th Century was a time of specialisation. A time when enterprises needed employees to become progressively more knowledgeable about smaller and smaller pieces of the overall work, until society reaches a point where individuals know everything about their own tiny version of nothing, and worse, no longer know how to communicate with the individuals in other silos.

The moment a change initiative extends outside one of these vertical silos is the moment success becomes almost impossible to solve.

The more silos that need to be involved, the solution challenge becomes exponentially greater.

These kinds of inter-silo change challenge can only be solved by people with fundamentally different, horizontal, dot-connecting skills.

Again from Day One, our philosophy was that we needed people that can see the world and think horizontally.

The 21st Century will be the century of the horizontal thinker
