The following paper has been circulated to BBRT members since the last Newsletter:
Why self-managed teams need fewer control systems
Abstract: Most organizations incur huge costs on a plethora of control systems designed to link high-level decisions with low-level actions. And with the power of IT systems to facilitate detailed drill-downs many executives become micro-managers rather than inspiring leaders. Eliminating these control systems reduces complexity and cost and is one of the greatest prizes of effective decentralization and empowerment. Information is integrated in the work and front line teams regulate their own performance while senior managers monitor high-level patterns and trends. This paper looks at how some organizations have made these changes successfully.
BBRT members can download the full papers from the BBRT Members' Community (formerly Private Forum) at www.bbrt.org/online. Join the BBRT to obtain this and previous papers – contact Peter Bunce at email@example.com.
