The Power of Self-Management
Self-management is a principle that we believe is the fundamental requirement for empowering both people and organizational success in today’s unprecedented times, as well as in our future economy. Self-management is a hot topic at the moment, and often pops up in discussions –but what is self-management? And, where do you start, once you’ve decided to go down this road? We see self-management as the value of letting teams operate like micro-organizations that are autonomous and self-reliant.
Today, there’s a huge repository of research that confirms the positive effects of allowing teams to be self-managed, with minimal or no interference from the management. Autonomous teams help organizations respond faster and nimbly to the dynamic changes of today’s markets. Having busted through the proverbial bureaucratic red tape, these teams can cut to the chase and solve problems as and when they emerge.
