Coverdale Theme Booklet 2 Tunnel Vision (EN)

Don’t let tunnel vision leave you out in the cold!

 

Having worked with managers, teams and organizations for many years, we have witnessed the effects of major changes in the business world, increasing internationalization, complexity and accelerated development on business enterprises and the people who work for them. We have observed that many managers and line employees develop a kind of “tunnel vision” that compels them to work harder and faster, yet often less effectively. Though rarely the result of a conscious choice, this frequently has a negative impact on their creativity and innovative drive.

Is it art, or can we get rid of it?

 

This question is equally relevant to quite a few modern works of art and a number of trash heaps as well. Modern art is not always necessarily recognizable as such – as in the case of the two ladies who were looking for something in which to wash glasses for an evening event organized by the Leverkusen chapter of the SPD in 1973. How could they know that the old bathtub full of bandages and gauze they found in the basement was actually a work by a guy named Josef Beuys? Their misjudgment cost DM 58,000 at the time and has since been cited with amusement in numerous anecdotes and television commercials.
