How Does Your Company Fare Against the Peter Drucker Checklist?

How Does Your Company Fare Against the Peter Drucker Checklist? | The New way of Work | Scoop.it
If an organization were to embody the core principles laid out by management icon Peter Drucker, what would it look like? And how does yours compare?

 

John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

Drucker was a very well respected guru of management. Another was Stephen Covey senior who told us something Drucker never mentioned, that the possible performance gain from properly managing people is 500%. That is a huge number, almost unbelievable. But with the right actions, it is achievable.

I know education would get a failing grade and that includes at the local school level.

donhornsby's curator insight, October 8, 2013 3:04 AM

(From the article): You have a Drucker-like company if you:

 

• Have a strong mission and a cogent answer to the deceptively difficult question, “What business are we in?”

 

• Always remember that “there is only one valid definition of business purpose: to create a customer” while accepting that “quality in a product or service is not what the supplier puts in. It is what the customer gets out and is willing to pay for.”

 

• Push responsibility and accountability as far down into the organization as possible and follow this basic communications strategy: Listen down, talk up.

The Network Organization and Its Hybrid Workplace Systems | Rethinking Complexity

The Network Organization and Its Hybrid Workplace Systems | Rethinking Complexity | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

Geographically distributed, functioning in a global context and ongoing engagement with internal and external professionals are apt key descriptors of the 21st century organization.

The complex pulsating networks in which an organization comes to life and thrives, in reality, is the organizations itself; while the planned and spontaneous connectivity that fills members’ daily work routines is the modern office. The workplace is wherever one is when connect via technology.

These are themes that have been examined over the past several months in the Rethinking Complexity blog.

Let’s continue this exploration, concentrating on the impact that globalization and technology is having on how the workplace is envisioned and structured.

The Kind of Work Humans Still Do Better Than Robots

The Kind of Work Humans Still Do Better Than Robots | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

People and computers are coming together in all kinds of interesting ways these days. The right combination of human and digital smarts in chess will beat the top grandmaster, the best chess supercomputer, and the top grandmaster with the best supercomputer. At least one VC firm is giving an algorithm a formal vote on its investments. And robots (which I consider to be computers with a physical presence) are increasingly working side by side with people on factory and warehouse floors.

Prioriteit

 

Keuzestress is een vorm van stress die veroorzaakt wordt doordat iemand overspoeld wordt met informatie die overwogen moet worden om een 'goede' keuze te kunnen maken . Niet alleen de complexiteit van de keuze speelt mee, ook het enorm toegenomen aantal keuzes in de laat-moderne samenleving is een belangrijke oorzaak van keuzestress. (Wikipedia, 2014)

Phase 2 Synthesis: Imagining the Post-Bureaucratic Organization | MIX Hackathon | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

During Phase 2 of the Busting Bureaucracy hackathon, we worked together to imagine and define the attributes of the post-bureaucratic organization: what new management practices might provide an alternative to the bureaucratic model of top-down control and formal rules and procedures? 

 

We’ve synthesized the over 75 contributions from the hackathon team into eight categories, summarized below:

Jeremy Rifkin: Intelligent technology and the future of human labour

Jeremy Rifkin: Intelligent technology and the future of human labour | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

Earlier this month, I spoke to Jeremy Rifkin about his new book, The Zero Marginal Cost Society. Our conversation ranged widely over many of the book’s central arguments, particularly those concerning the transition, driven by new information technologies, from a capitalist market economy to what Rifkin calls the “Collaborative Commons”. We ended with a brief discussion of the future of work. In the following guest post, Rifkin discusses in more detail the implications of the ”wholesale substitution of intelligent technology for mass wage labour and salaried professional labour.”

The Future of Work is Found in the Transparent Organization | Switch and Shift | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

Ford created a revolution when he put people on a production line. The new labor movement takes us off the line and into management: management of tasks, relationships, and results. Coming off the production line also allows us to collaborate, innovate, make decisions and solve problems.

People work to accomplish together what they cannot do alone. I see transparency as the key ingredient to change the landscape between labor and capital and create a results culture that becomes the new standard.  When we share the results of our labor, we all prosper. This century is our time to prosper. This is the new labor movement and our future.

#ResponsiveOrg - building a new way of working | simply communicate | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

"The Responsive Organization is a movement of people who want to help their organizations become more responsive to a world that is very different to that of the Industrial Age.” Matthew Partovi

Many times you wanted to make a change at work, but uncertainties and self-doubts came in their way. You became very scared of the negative implications of the change (e.g. "I might lose my job", "I might find enemies," etc.) and you ended up believing that "it might be better if everything remains the same." Yet, there was something inside yourself that keeps on saying: "something has to change, to improve, to make it better. What should I be doing?"
