You don’t need a manager

Why? Because most probably he will:

  • Work on processes, not on value creation
  • Be responsible for a certain centralized function: IT, Dev, PMO, Process Improvement department; which is not valuable without others (or just not valuable and gives overhead)
  • Try to coordinate communication among different teams
  • Have desire to push down decisions
  • Have own goals


But you need leaders who will:

  • Help to form cross-functional teams and delegate decisions to them
  • Make information transparent and easily accessible
  • Encourage collaboration
  • Focus on value creation, not process improvements
  • Build shared goals

  1. All people that do this can be found performing a clever and healthy actions.
    Some employees should develop into given assistance help them
    quit tobacco or lose surplus fat.

    1. but isn’t it the work of leader, not manager? because manager will try to force you quit smoking, so you would work more. And leader will care about you 🙂
