I donât usually read forwarded email, but I received one today that caught my attention. It was written by someone who works at Volvo in Sweden, and he mentions how any project in the company âtakes 2 years to be finalized, even if the idea is simple and brilliant. Itâs a rule.â?
Apparently the fast-paced global corporate world, focused on immediate results, âcontrasts greatly with the slow movements of the Swedish. They, on the other hand, debate, debate, debate, hold x quantity of meetings and work with a slowdown scheme. At the end, this always yields better results.â?
