Small changes in a collaborative world.

In a world shifting from command and control to networks, managers have to adapt their expectations while still keeping their employees accountable. The three most important areas are what Rod Collins calls The Three M’s: Managers, Meetings, & Measures. By resetting expectations of  these three components of the workplace managers can become facilitators and meetings become highly functional dialogs instead of debates. Making some small changes to tip the organization into a more networked style is the key to Collins’s advice.
