As part of my ongoing effort to share insights from this IBM study of CEO’s, it is clear the era of military style “command and control” is dead. …
CEO’s need some degree of control – to enforce regulatory compliance, drive standardization and avoid waste, but beyond that CEO’s believe a trend toward openness brings the best business results. …
CEO’s are working to move their organizations to a more collaborative environment …
IBM has some specific recommendations :
* Replace rulebooks with shared beliefs
Ensure employees know what to do without being told
* Build future-proof employees
Create unconventional teams, concentrate on experiential learning and empower high value networks for employees.
* Provide tools to collaborate at scale
Pursue social collaboration technologies, devise incentives to foster collaboration, and breathe new life into the employee “suggestion box.”
All in all, CEO’s need to lead in new ways, foster collaboration and expand beyond the walls of their own organization.
