The average life expectancy of a human being in the 21st century is about 67 years. Do you know what the average life expectancy for a company is?

Surprisingly short, it turns out. In a recent talk, John Hagel pointed out that the average life expectancy of a company in the S&P 500 has dropped precipitously, from 75 years (in 1937) to 15 years in a more recent study. Why is the life expectancy of a company so low? And why is it dropping?

The Dilbert paradox | The Ideas Economy

Found at The Dilbert paradox | The Ideas Economy. performance pressures mount in our global economy, competitive success will increasingly depend on resolving the Dilbert Paradox.

What is the Dilbert Paradox? If you ask any senior executives what their top priorities are, they will inevitably respond that talent is one of their top priorities. Got it. But then look at all the enormously popular cultural artifacts like Dilbert and The Office that so graphically demonstrate the absolutely stultifying effect of our daily work environments on talent. How do we reconcile these two observations?
