Ett flertal exempel på oklara forskningsresultat – luddiga metoder, ja ibland rena falsarier – detta kommer driva på en ökad transparens inom forskningen – också! Jag har ju länge drivit tesen att internet generellt – men även mobila terminaler och leaks-effekter driver på denna förändring. Om vi vill hitta ytterligare drivkrafter så finns de i

* yngre generation som kräver ÄNNU mer helhet, tydlighet och respekt

* högre krav från sponsorer och finansiärer

* ett ökat antal appar och andra funktioner som genomlyser företag, organisationer och andra verksamheter

* tjänster som ranka, reco.se osv kommer flytta sig upp i värdekedjan

Get ready for transparency – and don’t say we didn’t tell you!

HUR ska vi få ordning på allt detta?

I min bok om LUCK-konceptet försöker jag bygga en struktur som enligt min mening fungerar rätt bra:

L – står för en struktur som KAN baseras på Lean-filosofin (som Scania, SKF, Toyota m fl nyttjar) eller annan som sätter individen i centrum och som kräver “no blame”, tydlighet, ansvar, samarbete

K – kognition – hur hjärnan tar in information och hur vi drivs.

C – coaching – hur vi leder vår personal och kollegor så vi följer den valda vägen och sätter kunden i centrum.

U – utvecklande internetverktyg – förutom de jag nämnt tidigare i artikeln även wikisar, chatt, long tail-effekt, scanning av molnen mm

The last couple of days, I’ve supported organisations in leading change, adjusting means and measures, and attitudes to change. Have you noticed how things find you when you need them? (Although I believe in another explanation!)

THE first is an ancient native American saying, the second is a quote by Abe Lincoln, the 16th American President.

The first: Their word for crisis and trouble also meant “a gift allowing you to learn and grow”

The second: “in times of trouble and hardship we shall not raise TO the challenge – but WITH it!”

To me – they both mean “we have it in us” – “we are prepared” – so trust yourself, co-create with friends and colleagues. Good luck!

As Daniel Pink points out in this excellent talk on WWW.TED.COM – management is not something from nature. It is created during the era of industrialism. As is our current school system. This commented by Sir Ken Robinson here.

Now if compliance with your ideas as a manager is what you expect – just continue directing and leading. But, if you want more – to release the true inner passion and knowledge – then we need to bring on someting new. Because we make very poor use of our talents. Let’s do what Sir Robinson proposes: “Let’s move from “getting on” to “loving what you do”!

Key words are
* self directions
* getting the issue of money off the table
* releasing the passion and creativity – such as the 24 hrs of something else…

Oh yes, check the LUCK concept!

Remember the old saying “Power and money corrupts people”? Another philosopher claimed “No, money and power projects your real self!” I for one, believe more in the second one.

Recently (yesterday, that is…) I ran a workshop on “change management” (later renamed “change leadership” when I started nailing down details of the workshop). The title simply didn’t work with my values and belief system. I believe change mainly calls for leadership – not management – as we in change are exposed to a whole range of inner and outer psychological reactions that call for a present leader.

And what really motivates us? RSA did a great video on this. And within a few miutes I was pointed to the original video by Daniel Pink – here at www.ted.com

When thinking about it – if incentives for most of our daily work doesn’t work – or even makes us care for personal goals rather than the organizational goals (from whom the incentives originate!) we’re striving for – why have incentives at all? In my darkest moments incentives are even cousins with bribes and corruption – only the money is delivered by different means.

Still, they share the risk of pulling me as an individual away from our task, our business idea – and eventually – ethics.

What do YOU think?
