The Golden Age Of Management Is Now

The Golden Age Of Management Is Now | Acting for Change | Scoop.it
We live in a golden age of management, that combines continuous innovation with disciplined execution. It is as passionately romantic as it is relentlessly practical. 24 recent books constitute a new canon of management.
Celine Schillinger's insight:

1.       From maximizing shareholder value to profitable customer delight.
2.       From sustainable competitive advantage to continuous strategic adaptation.
3.       From a pre-occupation with efficiency to co-creating value with stakeholders.
4.       From uni-directional value chains to multi-directional value networks.
5.       From steep hierarchies to shared responsibilities.
6.       From control and bureaucracy to disciplined innovation.
7.       From economic value to values that grow the firm.
8.       From command to conversation.
9.       From managing the machine to stewardship of stakeholders.
10.      From episodic improvements to a paradigm shift in management.

Out-love everyone else | Business Innovation Factory | Acting for Change | Scoop.it
Exploring ways to use social media in business has brought Céline Schillinger deep into the realms of human purpose. What seems to us like a set of tech-driven, one-dimensional behaviors — posting, commenting, checking in, and otherwise connecting — can signal, for Schillinger, a longing for meaningful action in the world.

What is organisational culture? Ask an anthropologist.

What is organisational culture? Ask an anthropologist. | Acting for Change | Scoop.it
Jane Watson accuses HR of "Sloppy Thinking on Culture". This is grossly unfair! CEOs, marketing executives, PR luvvies, business journalists, management consultants, politicians and motivational speakers have all been at it for years too. Ever since the concept emerged in the 1980s, it has been seized upon by those who want it to mean whatever it…
Celine Schillinger's insight:
"... culture is “a pattern of shared basic assumptions”. Because these are unspoken, those who share them don’t realise they are doing so. They just carry on assuming. They only stop assuming when the beliefs they have taken for granted are challenged. Even then, they will cling to these beliefs even in the face of powerful evidence. These assumptions and beliefs underpin the behaviour that produces the unwritten rules, the rituals and the visible artifacts that define the society. Or, in our case, the organisation.

If culture is something an organisation has, then you can just dump it and get a new one. If it is something an organisation is, then changing it means deep surgery (or therapy) for the whole organisation. 
Organisations don’t HAVE hierarchical cultures, they ARE hierarchical cultures. The people make up the organisation so it behaves as it does because of the assumptions the people inside it carry. To say culture is something an organisation has externalises it – makes it somehow separate from the people who are part of it"
