The Ministry of Common Sense

The Ministry of Common Sense

A humorous yet practical five-step guide to ridding ourselves – and our companies – of the bureaucratic bottlenecks and red tape that plagues every office.

How often in your life do you spend time following a rule or a procedure that makes no sense, offers little or no advantage, and slows you down in the process? In a world of work governed by a system of well-intentioned rules, that’s something that happens all too often.

In this audiobook Martin Lindstrom – a global leader in branding and expert in organisational culture – takes you behind the scenes at companies which are paralyzed and demoralised by a breakdown in common sense. Lindstrom shares a five-step process for identifying and repairing these lapses, showing that restoring common sense always cuts costs, boosts engagement and increases customer retention.

The stories in The Ministry of Common Sense are entertaining, troubling, eye-opening and recognisable to anyone who works in or leads an organisation of any size. It’s easy to get blinded to problems right in front of you – but setting up your own Ministry of Common Sense will mean less time wasted on unnecessary things, less mistakes and misunderstandings, and a better way of working for all.
