The CIA's Guide to Making Engineers Miserabl‪e‬ Engineering and Leadership Podcast

    • Careers

In this episode, I explore a WWII-era guide to "Simple Sabotage" published by the CIA's predecessor, the Office of Strategic Services. It explains how disgruntled citizens of foreign nations can do little things to be disruptive and cause trouble.



As it so happens, the section on disrupting the way organizations work reads like a modern organization's playbook. Without realizing it, the modern workplace looks almost designed to disrupt the normal operations of a business.



I focus on five of the most common sabotaging behaviours that I see in the workplace today and offer ideas on how to avoid them.
