Interesting discussion from Maister on how all of the onion layers of modern working can and should interlink. Is my project / team / office / country / client / boss / industry / specialism the focus of my effort? I can’t do all of them, as there are just too many meetings in the day given all of the interactions between the groups.

I wonder how this would play in central government, where the direct customer contact is more limited. For local government, I can see that very similar rules hold for commercial organisations.
