The End of Middle Managers (And Why They'll Never Be Missed) - Forbes

The End of Middle Managers (And Why They'll Never Be Missed) - Forbes | new society | Scoop.it

In my opinion, a company needs leaders—not managers. From the top down, every employee has the opportunity to lead, starting with the organization of one within the larger organization that we call “Me, Inc.” Every individual is responsible for shaping and creating their own future (with collaboration and a little assistance, of course.)

P2P versus Marxism: a new (r?)evolutionary way to build a better world - P2P Foundation

P2P versus Marxism: a new (r?)evolutionary way to build a better world - P2P Foundation | new society | Scoop.it

Horizontal, networked structures and hybrid institutions are becoming more and more important and could very well in time overshadow traditional hierarchical organisations and institutions. It will be a system in which coordination will gradually replace planning and participatory and liquid democracy will overtake representative democracy in many fields. I think that the idea of global sharing of knowledge, combined with local, sustainable production (and agriculture) is very powerful.

Want Transformational Change? Change Yourself First.

Yet few executives understand that being a truly transformational leader requires three (sometimes difficult) things:

1.Risk. Aspiring transformational leaders must be willing to take the risks associated with change. Doing better always requires change, but not all change leads to improvement. There is always risk in change.

2.Admit the Need for Change. Executives must acknowledge that many of the attitudes and skills that may have made them effective in the past are not relevant to leading change. They must be open to learning new ways to lead.

3.Change Yourself First. Too often we have seen leaders recognize that others need to change, but they don’t want to do anything differently themselves. Change is hard, yet positive organizational change starts with personal change by executives.

Business and media in the age of uncertainty | Charlie Beckett

Business and media in the age of uncertainty | Charlie Beckett | new society | Scoop.it

Every organisation is now a media company.Here are some key ways of thinking about current media change beyond the technological changes that enable this.

1. Disintermediation: as all organisations become media organsiations and as all citizens can now create their own media – the organisations that we used to call media organisations can now be cut out of the information chain.

2. Personalisation: disintermediation is related to another trend towards the personalisation of media – not only can individuals create their own media but they can customise their own consumption with much greater potential diversity of sources and networks.

3. Mobility: by mobility I mean literally the portability of platforms – but also the portability of information with all the implications that has for ownership copyright and so on

4. Interactivity: And all the above leads to much greater interactivity – we are not passive anymore – information flows are now more open, and can be accessed instantly, they can also be forwarded or shaped and passed on instantly – we are in networks not audiences. And increasingly we – as consumers and citizens determine the rules for those networks.
