[Video] Ricardo Semler: Leading by omission or… why change and disruption can’t happen from inside

I’m exceptionally posting two videos today. Another talk from Ricardo Semler – see my previous post for newest talk at TEDGlobal – and yes, it’s official I’m in love with that guy.

This talk was originally given at MIT Sloan School of Management in 2005.

There’s “something fundamental about organizations and ‘ leadership that makes it almost impossible for people inside a business to change their own industry.

Ricardo Semler discusses why it is difficult or impossible to innovate or disrupt from inside the organisation – giving examples in Automotive and legacies of military hierarchies. Although I don’t agree with his point on intuition alone, I cannot but agree with his point on wishful thinking for having experimented it in multiple companies.
