What Good is a Mess?

As a profession, project managers have a tendency toward the tidy. Would you agree? I'm not talking about tidy in terms of cleanliness. I'm talking about tidy in terms of organized. Buttoned up. In control.

In this episode, Tim Harford joins us to argue for the value of messiness. Tim is the author of the new book entitled Messy: The Power of Disorder to Transform Our Lives. You can learn more about Tim at his website http://timharford.com/.
