Was reading these amazing stats that compare the average rider with a TDF rider. What was really staggering was the work to sleep ratio. Clear message that we all ignore too much – Performance requires sleep.

During the Tour, the pros average about 2 hours of sleep for every hour of racing.

elBulli: a creative organization Management Innovation eXchange

Really liked this case study over at the MIX. It’s this kind of stuff that makes it part of my weekly reads:

Lessons

ElBullis experience in building the creative organization brings to the fore the importance of having a model of organization aligned towards creativity.

5 determinants of the creative organization at elBulli are presented:

1-Creation and Creativity-Focus on creativity rather than customers-Exploring new path rather than leveraging activities already carried out

2-Diversity-In team composition-Broad, diverse cognitive base-Incorporation of new ideas-Greater ability to interpret reality, crafting innovative options

3-Strong Organizational Identity-Based on strong long lasting values -Generosity to share knowledge in and outside the organization-Teamwork:individual talent to enhance organizational talent-Extreme creativity

4-Low macroculture embeddedness-No comparison or benchmark with competitors-Viewed by the market as an artistic experience: elBulli=art-elBullis gastronomy spans across arts, psychology, science and technology-Breaking new ground: avant-garde cooking

5-Open business model-Knowledge is created in and outside the organization-Partnership that enable knowledge acquisition i.e.,Harvard-Sharing knowledge with others
