According to an old adage, “necessity is the mother of invention.” Business professor Scott Sonenshein presents his well-researched contribution to this “less is more” school of thought. The lecture, based on the eponymous book, includes several colorful anecdotes but otherwise lacks pizzazz. Nevertheless, getAbstract recommends you stay for the duration as Sonenshein uncovers useful ways to improve success, creativity and happiness.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why a focus on amassing resources like money, time and proficiency can hinder your success, your creativity and even your happiness;
- Why large firms struggle to be innovative and resourceful; and
- What four skills will help you do more with less.
