McKinsey Quarterly calls for new working norms

"Always-on, multitasking work environments are killing productivity, dampening creativity and making us unhappy," writes the highly esteemed McKinsey Quarterly in the January 2011 edition.

This is highly counterproductive for organizational performance. Something needs to be done.

Changing this "requires a tremendous amount of self-discipline, and we can't do it alone: in our teams and across the whole organization, we need to establish a set of norms that support s more productive way of working."
