We have new roundabouts in the city and I am still trying to get used to them. When I paused to consider why they were challenging to me, I realized it is because roundabouts violate the standard protocols allowing drivers on the right to have precedence. In this case, drivers approaching from the left have the priority.

Right-of-ways work in many situations, but, like with the roundabout, is there a case where “left-of-ways” work more effectively? Maybe your organization needs to rethink one of its processes and reverse the conventional way of doing things. In order to efficiently go with the flow, you may actually have to first go against it.
