Management is expensive and it's inefficient. The Taylorist model of scientific management persists to this day even though the world that it was designed for is long gone. Slowly, very slowly, some companies are transforming. They're abandoning annual performance reviews, they're giving more trust to their staff to take holidays when they need and to spend money wisely. They're devolving power and decision making to the people who have the best information to make those decisions. But still, so many companies are stuck in a world where your place on the corporate ladder determines your worth. Where you do as you say and don't talk back. This talk features examples of management transparency, openness and trust that are proven to work. After all, don't we all want to be treated as adults?
