Think globally, act locally

I remember the saying that goes something like this…

You live in a village while

You think about the city and

You act like a country

Idea being not worrying too much about own little world. It pays to know the macro environment whether it is about the industry or the company. It helps make sense of what happens around us. It provide perspective on the bigger picture and other shifts happening around us – putting individual view points in the appropriate context.

All successful ecosystems do a good job educating/sharing bigger picture to help with the decision making. Not only it helps reduce silos and remove fiefdom but also causes individuals to be intuned to the macro reality of the larger needs that group must tackle.

Other way to say is think globally, act locally!!
