Are you a Linchpin or a Cog in the Machine?

Always interested in what makes innovative organizations work. Josh Bernoff of Forrester in the GroundSwell blog reviews and outlines Seth Godin's new book, forthcoming this week: Linchpin, Are you Indispensable?. Its kind of an old recommendation to make yourself indispensable in the organization. Then you can ask the question: Is the Organization indispensable for me? But any group, even in 2010, still needs more cogs than linchpins. Like my HR person said when asked to hire only the best and the brightest: 'Who is going to do all of the work?'. Until AI prevails we still need people to punch the keys. Looking forward to reading it.
