Fake Work

I have been reading Elliott Masie's Learning Trends for several years - since my time in SmartForce.  I once met him in Dublin when he visited Ireland in the mid 1990s - at that time SmartForce was called CBT Systems. 

In today's edition he interviews the author of a new book called "Fake Work" - you can hear the podcast here (15 mins). The book focuses on "Why People are Working Harder Than Ever but Accomplishing Less, and How to Fix the Problem!". It is an interesting podcast that will ring true to many people - perhaps we are working on things that don't contribute to the Organization we work for. Things like writing reports and creating PowerPoint presentations, are regarded as sometimes being unnecessary. Have a listen, and think!
