How Medium Is Building a New Kind of Company with No Managers

How Medium Is Building a New Kind of Company with No Managers | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

For two years, Stirman managed a team at Twitter and never felt quite right about it. There was always the tension between being their boss and being their peer. He read all the ‘right’ books on management and took the advice to heart: don’t get too chummy, shield your team from anything they don’t need to know, ask them to identify roadblocks to progress, reward them all equally. He hated it.

“Management perspective looks at reports as resources — like how can you get the maximum value out of this person,” Stirman says. “But when I think resources, I think like natural gas or coal mines. Thinking about a person’s life that way just seemed really dehumanizing.”

Doesn't this sound like agility applied to management? "You know what, we’re going to hire the best people we know and trust them to make decisions for us.’ All day people make decisions, own parts of the company, and act on them. The momentum this creates far outweighs someone making a bad decision. You also have the momentum to change course quickly.”

Robert Farrow's curator insight, October 18, 5:51 AM

Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have drastically changed the way we learn as well as how we teach. The main aim of MOOCs is to provide new opportunities to a massive number of learners to attend free online courses from anywhere all over the world. MOOCs have unique features that make it an effective technology-enhanced learning (TEL) model in higher education and beyond. The number of academic publications around MOOCs has grown rapidly in the last few years. The purpose of this paper is to compile and analyze the state-of-the-art in MOOC research that has been conducted in the past five years. A template analysis was used to map the conducted research on MOOCs into seven dimensions, namely concept, design, learning theories, case studies, business model, targets groups, and assessment. This classification schema aims at providing a comprehensive overview for readers who are interested in MOOCs to foster a common understanding of key concepts in this emerging field. The paper further suggests new challenges and opportunities for future work in the area of MOOCs that will support communication between researchers as they seek to address these challenges.

Great graphics to explain dynamic governance. Though I believe his statement is misleading that "everyone has an equal voice. CEO has no greater voice than anyone else." This presumes everyone feels truly safe to state their point of view, and that is not always the case. Culture matters here.

I am always delighted to find like minded people ! "Holacracy [...] shares the same core principles that agile methodologies are based on".

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, October 17, 12:07 PM

All the new media rock stars that were launched post Web 2.0 have one thing in common: they don't produce all of the content they publish.


From the Huffington Post to BuzzFeed to Upworthy or Business Insider, they all use a mix of creation, aggregation and curation. As this practice was initially heavily criticized by the old media gurus, the fact that the respectable New York Times now embraces it possibly could be the best recognition that the remix culture in general and content curation in particular have won.
