    About "Haydn Shaughnessy"

    1. Haydn Shaughnessy

      I mostly write factual books on economic change I studied economic history at the London School of Economics and Oxford university and I apply some of that discipline to my work on modern business.My latest book is FLOW, written with Fin Goulding, CIO at Aviva It s a book about how enterprises can work effectively while giving people responsibility, allowing creativity, and breaking down old fashioned processes It should be a standard for how people work as we all become agile.While I do a fair bit of consulting based on this type of research my real passion lies in writing about new developments in the economy I follow a method that Steven Klepper called nano economics Essentially that means getting right down into the detail of things and learning about trends through the finest layers of evidence.My belief is a book should be a debate There s now way I can get al the detail right or that I can interpret it correctly In the old days, peer review would have taken us in the right direction and maybe today a wider peer review community can do the same.I am also the author of Shift A Leader s Guide to the Platform Economy, and Platform, Disruption, Wave.
