Are your office staff working in the Red Zone or the Green Zone?
|Knowledge Worker Red Zone||Knowledge Worker Green Zone|
|1.||They work busily without questioning value or cost.||They clarify the value of their work before expending their finite resources.|
|2.||They do what they’ve always done and their contributions look very similar to the status quo.||They solve problems and realise opportunities by collaboratively designing creative solutions that suit the context and leverage the system. They aim for sophisticated simplicity and do not reinvent wheels.|
|3.||They don’t do change management.||They design the behaviour change that must occur for their solutions to be enacted.|
|4.||They write how they’ve always written and their documents look like a thousand others.||They design and deliver whatever information is needed for their solutions to be enacted.|
|= COSTLY BUSYNESS||= COST-EFFECTIVE USEFULNESS|
To be useful and cost-effective, knowledge workers need to complete this circle
