A lot of office culture today emphasizes productivity. But learning remains essential, and often gets left behind. Who has the time?
Dmitry Koltunov makes the case for making time through a formal office book club:
Sometimes you need to slow down to speed up. To grow ALICE from three of us to 30 people, and to get through the early stage hurdles, we had to find a way to prioritize learning as a team. So we started an office bookclub. No other tradition has had more of a positive impact on our culture, our processes and our product.
