Every day we are ultimately marketing and selling our work to our colleagues within the business. It is not something that we should be afraid of, far from it. We should be constantly focused on our target markets and delivering our messages in ways that excite, compel and engage. And moreover, designing our products with that end user in mind.

We have made our organisations to complex and over managed. We need to take a step back and work harder on simplification. But more than that we need to consumerise our offering, to think of employees and managers as the end user and design interventions around them. If we’re serious about adding value, let’s create the value that people want. Not the value we think they need.
