Stupidity in business can lead to disasters. From absurd routines to idiotic management practices, from lost productivity and slow reaction times to financial catastrophes and organisational collapse.  Yet a mindlessness and idiocy can, at least for a while help people do things more easily, can help people get along better and really just get on with it. This is the stupidity paradox. So how is stupidity impacting the way we do business? And should we do anything about it? We talk to Professor Mats Alvesson to find out.
