Grameen and Time

There is a sense of mission about Grameen workers that mocks the claims to motivated and inspired businesses elsewhere. Yet there is nothing frentic or fervid about the workers. The approach is mindful, disciplined, stately if anything. Bureaucracy and deference are equal hallmarks of this enterprise. But good things take time – and that approach, which can be mistaken for languor, is a curiosity to my time poor western eyes.
