Alexander Abdennur’s observations show people avoiding open discourse, taking segmented positions, and hiding behind organizational structures. After reviewing two universally occurring and challenging developments—complexity and camouflage—Abdennur recommends a cognitive approach for the management of work... [READ MORE]
