Gary Klein’s 2013 book “Seeing What Others Don't: The Remarkable Ways We Gain Insights” is a good read, as I’ve found with his his other books. He likes to explore a topic from stories and search for corroborating links to draw together new conclusions. And as this book is about insight, the overall story of this book describes his journey of discovery as he delved into the topic. I particularly liked his discussion of the challenges that organizations face in gaining and using insights.

Ron Baker has an interesting pair of articles in which he presents the underlying problem that he has with inordinate focus on the billable hour at law firms. He talks about a problem that is familiar to anyone who uses efficiency as their primary measure: it severely inhibits growth. He also presents some good arguments on a path out of this situation.
