Interesting week ahead!
Kim Korn arrived on Sat to Urban Mill and we will arrange several events together around the theme of Regenerative Managing during this week.
The digitalizing world requires constant focus on creative destruction and exploration – in other words, enterprise regeneration. The newly created Regenerative Managing framework enables organizations to seize this opportunity.
A one-day semi-open workshop will be held tomorrow, on April 21st. Create Advantage Inc. (USA) and Urban Mill offer an experimental workshop for pioneering organizations interested in learning about becoming regenerative and self-sustaining themselves. We have a group of 20+ multi-talented pioneers co-creating the managing and workshop concept further with Kim.
Later this week we’ll visit some of our stakeholders and start managament development dialogue with them, including EIT ICT Labs Lunch on Fri 24.4. 12-13.
Next autumn we’ll open up outcomes of this week to a wider audience. Stay tuned! We’ll tell more during the week.
And why are we doing this?
WHY Conventional Management Does Not Work
Business leaders using conventional management, leadership, and governance find themselves fighting a war on two fronts—one outside their company to be competitive against the ongoing creative destruction, the other inside their company to counteract the pernicious tendency of their company to become mediocre.
Conventional management—known by its hallmark of command & control—could effectively direct large, far-flung enterprises in times of stability. But it has always failed to tap the innovation and self-transformation power inherent in organizations that preserve and perpetuate them.
No matter how much we augment, tweak, and alter conventional management, its core principles will hold both management and employees in its restrictive grip and fail time and time again.
Why Regenerative Managing Does Work
Regenerative managing—a way of managing that continually regenerates your company—serves as the antidote for conventional management, leadership, and governance.
Unlike the structure and rigidity command and control brings an organization, this new way of managing brings flexibility and emergence. Regenerative Managing brings inspiration and fosters collaboration to meet employees’ innate needs, which enable them to thrive, and therefore their organization. With the new hallmarks of meaning & orchestration as its foundational underpinnings, this new way of management produces both operationally effective and self-rejuvenating companies and organizations.
