Summary
Despite enormous advances in technology, our workplaces are not nearly as efficient as they could be. Each week, more than 40 percent of employees make use of flawed information systems-and flawed information-to make decisions. The results are wasted time and squandered resources. From smarter collaboration to smoother travel, this CNBC program explores ways in which "wiser work" can lead to greater prosperity for businesses and organizations. Experts interviewed include James Surowiecki, financial journalist for The New Yorker and author of The Wisdom of Crowds, and Gordon Bethune, former CEO of Continental Airlines and former vice-president and general manager of the Boeing Commercial Airplanes Group's customer services division.
