Employee Self-Management

~ Increasing Productivity and Profits ~

How people are inspired, empowered and rewarded for their ability to adapt to changing conditions is the means by which work objectives are achieved and/or revised. Profitably increases or decreases by how promises are kept, and how products or services are delivered. Organizational profitability is derived from the Profit-"Ability"of employees. If employees do not have a concrete means to change, align and improve their habits--the same means that is understood and utilized by management for the improvement of its own strategies--there will be breakdowns in communication. There will be distorted perceptions that compromise the vision of leadership. There will be wasted action and profitability will be compromised.

~ Changing The Formal Rules of Hierarchy is the Only Way to Move Forward ~

"Self-Management, simply stated, is an organizational model wherein the traditional functions of a manager (planning, coordinating, controlling, staffing and directing) are pushed out to all participants in the organization instead of just to a select few. Each member of the organization is personally responsible for forging their own personal relationships, planning their own work, coordinating their actions with other members, acquiring requisite resources to accomplish their mission, and for taking corrective action with respect to other members when needed.

This manifests itself as a total absence of formal hierarchy. Formal hierarchy implies that there are those within the organization who have authority to direct the actions of others, and that there are others within the organization who have only limited authority. The principles of Self-Management acknowledge that those who would traditionally be viewed as the "employees" are, in fact, the ones who have the greatest insight into the management of their day-to-day functions and who are, further, in the best position to take immediate action when circumstances demand a response or a change in course. Those principles extend the rights and resources required to take action and make decisions out to those who are best suited to take action and make decisions rather than arbitrarily extending those rights to a select few individuals who we anoint with the title of 'manager'."
