Servant Leadership: The Agile Leadership Transformation

Servant Leadership: The Agile Leadership Transformation | Innovation | Scoop.it
Do you think like a Servant Leader? With the Agile Transformation requires a new approach to leadership.

Via ManagingAmericans
Christian Bartosik's insight:

The typical oldstyle manager seeks to achieve outstanding performance by focusing on processes and data.  He thinks that if he tweaks the workflow and captures some additional metrics, he can improve team performance.

He is always willing to set aside his job of planning, organizing, staffing and controlling in order to jump in to deal with the crisis of the day. Problem solving provides immediate gratification and allows him to go home at the end of the day feeling as if he has accomplished something.

The thoughts of a servant-leader would be completely different. His job is to develop people, not systems. Such a leader would view the success of his team as the means of achieving that success and would behave accordingly.  He would ensure the team has the resources it needs and would seek to remove obstacles that impede the team’s progress.  

The servant-leader allows the team to solve the crisis of the day without direct intervention.  He may provide coaching, advice or additional resources to the team, but he lets them work out the solution.  And he makes sure the team gets the credit for the solution.  The servant-leader understands that, over time, the problem solving skills of the team will exceed his own abilities.

Warum die Managementlehre immer noch Unsinn produziert

Warum die Managementlehre immer noch Unsinn produziert | Innovation | Scoop.it
Manager sollten lieber ihren Kunden hinterher laufen, statt ihrem Plan, so der unkonventionelle Rat der Beraterin Anne M.
Christian Bartosik's insight:

"Manager sollten lieber ihren Kunden hinterher laufen, statt ihrem Plan."

Die gängige Managementlehre führt nach seiner Ansicht in viele Denkfallen. Sie geht von Voraussetzungen aus, die längst nicht mehr gelten. Über Generationen fuhr man gut damit, Managementprobleme mit den Methoden des industriekapitalistischen Taylorismus zu bearbeiten.

Diese Methodik machte Sinn, als die Märkte noch überschaubar und träge waren.

Die Zukunft ist so unsicher geworden, dass ihre Vorwegnahme für Zwecke der Unternehmenssteuerung nicht mehr gelingt. So laufen Planung, Budgetierung und Anreizsysteme, die das Rückgrat des Taylorismus bilden, ins Leere.

Ein Werkzeug gegen verkrustete Planwirtschaft in Unternehmen sei das so genannte Labor.
Jeder darf es besuchen und sich auf Augenhöhe mit den dort arbeitenden Talenten austauschen.

Die Unternehmen sollten einfach mehr Hoodie-Nerds rekrutieren, auf Outsourcing von Software-Kompetenz verzichten und von den Silicon Valley-Angreifern lernen.

Sony 'First Flight' Turns to Crowdfunding for Employee Ideas

Sony 'First Flight' Turns to Crowdfunding for Employee Ideas | Innovation | Scoop.it
Crowdfunding has helped launch some innovative products in the marketplace, but it has generally been a realm inhabited by individuals with a dream. Yes, some major actors and directors like Spike Lee and Zach Braff have succeeded with crowdfunded products, but large corporations have generally stayed away.
Christian Bartosik's insight:

The program essentially allows employees of the technology giant to create start-ups in collaboration with potential customers. It is more of a dialogue than traditional crowdfunding offers, but the end result is that new products or services get created (which Sony owns), funded by an engaged user base.
