Topsight-the overall understanding of the big picture-is hard to achieve in organizations. There's too much going on, too many moving pieces. But without topsight, we have a hard time figuring out how information circulates, where it gets stuck, and how we can get it unstuck. Topsight is hard to get-but you can get it. I know: I've been achieving topsight into various organizations for the last 15 years. Along the way, I've developed an approach in which I gather clues, confirm details, model social interactions, and use all of these to systematically achieve topsight.
