Chart of the Day: New innovative management styles and their predecessors
When we talk about managing marketing teams, the emphasis is usually on building up a culture which inspires devotion and innovation. When looking to change company culture managers often have a hard time getting people to align themselves with what they envision the culture should be. That's where I think this graphic can be really useful. It shows the key breakthroughs in the history of managing human collaboration, right from tribes to the most innovative organizations in the world.
The chart doesn't specify any examples of the final 'teal' tier of human collaboration. But I think examples like Valve and Spotify show how self-managing teams can be incredibly efficient and effective.
