Why have technological advancements not been matched with exponential advancements in productivity? Over the last 60 years, global business complexity has increased six times over, and internal organizational complicatedness by over 35 times in response to this external complexity.

In this episode, we hear from the director of BCG’s Institute for Organization, Yves Morieux, on the organisational changes required to unlock human potential. Discussing his theory of ‘smart simplicity’, Yves explores the needs for balance between autonomy and cooperation as well as the role managers can play in facilitating this.
