Negative effects of Division of Labor

Adopted from the following great saying of Dan Ariely from his book Predictably Irrational..

“…[D]ivision of labor, in my mind, is one of the dangers of work-based technology. Modern IT infrastructure allows us to break projects into very small, discrete parts and assign each person to do only one of the many parts. In so doing, companies run the risk of taking away employees’ sense of the big picture, purpose, and sense of completion.”
