Gary Hamel - The Future of Management

CEO Blog

Listening to Gary Hamel - visiting professor of Strategic and International Management at London Business School. Still reporting from #WBF11. The sessions are awesome and inspirational. I had lunch with the people putting on C2-MTL , a creativity conference being held in Montreal in May of next year. Their program looks great. Cohosted with Circ du soleil so should be inspirational. Hopefully they will ask me to join them as either a blogger or presenter.

And we know that great management is the engine of progress. I love how Gary Hamel defined management as " the technology of human accomplishment ," in this post. And as Hamel reminds us, a catalyst for human progress? What we call things matters. Reality is socially constructed. If you think of management as something people do to pay a mortgage when they fail to succeed at the really cool jobs, you are pretty much doomed from the start.

Get Your Organization to Run in Sync

Harvard Business Review

A study of star engineers at Bell Labs found that the most accomplished ones worked in a close-knit group, but also frequently reached out to people outside of it. Gary Hamel and C.K. Hundreds of consumers standing in line at your local Apple store. Thousands of protesters rushing to flood the streets of Kiev, Istanbul, or Hong Kong.
