Self managed teams 101
Grass Roots Management shows you how to grow initiative and responsibility in all your people. It might not appeal to purists, but using the narrative of a business based on a garden open to the public the author gives a very simple, accessible and readable account of 'self-managed teams'.
Practical tips like:
- Start the change by fixing things that dont work
- Give your supervisors as much power as they can handle
- Give people the budget to go with the responsibility
