Bill Jensen on How to Hack Your Workplace

Companies are not designed to help us get our work done. Often there’s an easier way of doing our work but approval processes are slow and ideas stagnate. It’s only a select group of people, “hackers” as Bill Jensen calls them, who rise up and force change with their own ideas and without permission. If used benevolently, the workarounds will become company-wide and increase the workers’ happiness and their free time.

Bill Jensen is the CEO of the Jensen Group, a change consulting firm he founded in 1985, and he’s an acclaimed speaker. He lives in Morristown, New Jersey. He’s the author of the book, Simplicity. It’s a classic business book on eliminating the clutter in your personal and professional life. His new book is Hacking Work: Breaking Stupid Rules for Smart Results, which he wrote with Josh Klein.
