CASE HISTORY: One gig was a corporate makeover. Departments were growing like mad and what had passed for organization no longer worked and they were smart enough to know it.
The president, the smartest man I know, had the corner office. He filed piles of paper on the floor. The desk, as it turns out, was immaculate. I thought, all the drawers and filing furniture must be full. We talked and he told me he is a visual worker: he knows what to do next if he can see it. I got up and walked around to where he sat behind the desk. I apologized and opened a drawer. It was empty. Then another and another. It was remarkable.
