When the human factor is of importance...

Lately I've been reading Nick Leeson's Rogue Trader, which talks about his experience during the bankrupt of Barings Bank. Although the book has not impressed me that much, it led me to a few thoughts:

  • How can orgs be better at deciding who their key personnel is?

  • How can orgs be better at managing their key personnel?

  • What can orgs do to better protect their assets, brand, and most of all their org?

  • What would be the most efficient mechanism for keeping real-time checks on org critical operations?

  • What can orgs do to encourage their key personnel to stay focused on the orgs goals?
These thoughts will produce various responses depending on the circumstances during which they're asked. However, it is good to think about these things once in a while.
