Self-managing teams within a hierarchical organization
Category: Self-management - getting started
Perhaps your organization is ready to transition to self-managing teams at the front line, but needs or wants to keep a traditional management "above" the teams. That's often a first step... or all that is possible (for now) because your board or investor wouldn't support a more profound change.
This can work... but how? How can you articulate the relationship between thee team and its manager above, so that the team really is free and powerful to self-manage?
My hope is for the comments below the video to surface our collective wisdom on the topic. This could enrich the videos tremendously.
Have you experienced something similar in your own journey? What did you do about it? If you have something meaty to share, please add a link to an article, a video ... Feel free to agree or disagree with what I say, but always: please keep it on topic, relevant, practical. And of course, let's keep things respectful and kind. Please don't comment if what you say is off-topic or wouldn't benefit viewers of this page.
