In a previous post I asked (in Swedish) whether management is needed? My answer is yes, self-management, or as I would rather put it, self-organizing. The follow-up question then is how do you enable self-management? Gary Hamel has a number of suggestions in his book What Matters Now, pp. 212—217:
- Make the mission boss
- Let employees forge their own agreements
- Empower everyone – really!
- Don’t force people into slots
- Encourage competition for impact, not promotion
