Wiki Management: New Solutions for Managing at the Pace of Rapid Change
New Model for Leading at the Speed of Change
Conventional management thought presumes that command-and-control is the most effective way to organize the efforts of large numbers of people, but rapid change and increasing complexity have rendered that model obsolete.
As a result, most managers today lack the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a world where advantage belongs to the fast and the adaptable. However, there is a small but growing group of managers who are thriving in this time of great change by designing their organizations around the principles and practices of a new and very different model—Wiki Management.
The practitioners of this new model don’t build hierarchies; they build networks. That’s because in a postdigital world, networks are smarter and faster than hierarchies.
Examples of companies that are consciously focused on not building traditional bureaucratic hierarchies include Google, Zappos, Amazon, and Whole Foods. In addition, there are a handful of established companies that have embraced this paradigm shift such as Procter & Gamble, 3M, Johnson & Johnson, and IBM.
This webcast will explore how today’s most successful companies are using the power of networks to master the challenges of a rapidly changing world.
