In this episode, Aviv reflects on the paradigm shift from a structure-first to a value-first model. Aviv notes that, in the former outdated model, the flow moves from structure to work and from work to value indicating that structure defines work and the work defines value. 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.
