By host - Markus.Green"The key to management is to get rid of the managers," advised Ricardo Semler, whose TED Talk went viral, introducing terms such as “industrial democracy” and “corporate re-engineering”. It’s important to point out that Mr. Semler isn’t an academic or an expert in management theory, he is the CEO of a successful industrial company. His views are unlikely to represent mainstream thinking on organizational design. But perhaps it is time we redefine the term “manager”, and question whether the idea of “management” as it was inherited from the industrial era, has outlived its usefulness. ​​

The World Bank estimates the size of the global workforce at about 3.5 billion people, and by no means would I expect, much less advocate, that those who are employed today will transition into a management-free structure in the near or even medium term. The vast majority of work involving human labour is still best carried out in a traditional organisational structure.https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2017/12/is-management-era-over?fbclid=IwAR2YGFFsplgdLXrBNTDuoyH5ouWcin9j3uhK0FTxgyHgpV6NSXBjqS8DmFw

Yes, we have to adapt to the fast changing environment. The old or traditional management way is no longer suited for the challenges of our modern economy.

"Leadership is not about putting greatness into people, leadership is about recognizing that there's a greatness in everyone and your job is to create an environment where that greatness can emerge,"- Bill Campbell, the executive coach of Silicon Valley

This is a brilliant article. Reminds me of the work Lisa Bodel does exposing and removing illogical rules and unnecessary time waster that prevent people from actually having the time and space necessary to do their job and innovate.

Hierarchical systems are everywhere: religion; capitalism; management.

This is the best positive and most powerful post I saw in wef ... This is what world need immediately. This post will be eye opener for most who want to hold control, not to share entire knowledge, not to train complete. If your soldier is powerful than you, he won't leave enemy to reach you!

Interesting concepts, but they beg the question: when “disruption” becomes the mission, what are the consequences for the business entity? Leadership is the key concept for success, and it does exist in limited quantities.

We need leadership rather than management. I get more of a"control things" feel from the word management, but a leader is more someone who helps people to get going in the right direction, someone who people actually want to follow.

Yes! It is leadership that is needed and it has to be situational too.
