Human Centered Organizational Design

Enterprise social networks, user interface, performance management, and human centered design. These are all topics Kevin Jone and I discuss in this 3rd and final episode with him.


Kevin Jones works with companies to help them reimagine and change the way they work, operate, and how they engage their employees. The only way to do this is to challenge the status quo.

Kevin is an advisor, international speaker, and videographer, his expertise lies in organizational strategy, Enterprise Social Networks (ESNs), initiative adoption, and bringing the best out of employees. He focuses on the human side of business and technology. Kevin’s clients include NASA, Lowes, JCPenny, Dell, and many other well known companies. He’s authored two e-books, and produces videos that help communicate how we can challenge the status quo.

What technology could you implement that would improve the communication between teams at your company?

Do you really need to be doing everything you’re doing? Are there policies or traditional activities that could be dropped? What could you do to free up time to begin redesigning your workplace?

Are your employee surveys designed for the employees or managers?

What can you do to bubble up ideas for a new culture at your company?
