A keen subversive

I’ve been described as “a keen subversive of the last century’s management and education models”. Here are some of my past words on this site that may help to reinforce this description 😉

JOB is a four-letter word.

Knowledge workers of the world unite, you have nothing to lose but your managers.

Creative workers don’t need managers, they need executive assistants. It’s time to reverse the relationship between contributors and coordinators.

Process improvement is bad for innovation. It makes you myopic.

It’s not a question of what keeps managers awake at night, it’s what can we do to make sure they are awake to their networks during the day.

In complex networks, current management approaches are no longer adequate.

Management is the problem and management is also the solution, if you change it.

Organizations don’t need heroes, they need learners.

Courses are artifacts of a time when information was scarce and connections were few.

Sense-making in the network era is connecting to people, not merely accessing information sources.

Social media are new languages and the only way to learn a new language is through practice.

Once you realize that you live in a glass house, you start thinking differently.

There is no normal anymore.

    You’re also a keen designer and builder of tomorrow’s work design, self-management and personal and social learning models.
