I pre-ordered Humanocracy: Creating Organizations as Amazing as the People Inside Them by Gary Hamel and Michele Zanini because I expect a great book. His 2007 book, The Future of Management, Gary Hamel challenged us to think about what the future of management would be like.
At the time, Hamel was thinking in terms of “management innovation.” His vision was to do management work, only better. Here’s what he wrote in “The Why, What, and How of Management Innovation” in 2006.
“In a big organization, the only way to change how managers work is to reinvent the processes that govern that work.”
Since 2007, many writers have weighed in on what’s not working in the way we do things in organizations today. The discussion has shifted from tinkering with processes to something more radical.
I expect Professor Hamel to synthesize and summarize the main issues. I hope he gives me some models to think about the revolution to come.
Have you read Humanocracy? What did you think of it? What should I watch for? What else is good on the topic?
