Episode Summary

However, in this new model, which is centered on value, the flow has been reversed and is now initiated by the opportunity to create value. Finally, Aviv poses an intriguing thought experiment and leaves the audience with some sage advice. He urges them to talk to members of their organizations in order to decipher whether their activities are based on structure or value.
