The meaning of value

Two short talks (about 25 minutes each) that you can access here by Brian Eno and Yanis Varoufakis about the meaning of value are worth your time and energy.

My thoughts on listening to the above talks:
Price is quantifiable whereas value is something we determine.
The relationship we have with a person, group of people, as well as with things, largely determines our perspective of value.

An interesting conversation between Eno and Varoufakis in the Guardian here.

Value delivery in your organisation in my view is a consequence of how well employees feel valued and live your values. Valued, Values, and Value are a consequence of your leadership, management, and culture.

Assuming your product/s and service/s are what people value, and that you have sound financial systems in place, the future success of your business is all about your capability as pictured below.

Who will you become? What will you do next?

Be remarkable.

― Oscar Wilde
