On Wednesday evening December 15,
I'll be leading a discussion at KMI
of a synthesis of recent books that
propose the reinvention of management.
The books include Reinventing
Management by Julian Birkinshaw,
Reorganize for Resilience by Ranjay Gulati,
The Power of Pull by John Hagel, John
Seely Brown and Lang Davison, Delivering
Happiness by Tony Hsieh, Peak by
Chip Conley, Employees First,
Customers Second by Vineet Nayar,
Drive by Dan Pink, The Design of
Business by Roger Martin, The Dragonfly
Effect by Jennifer Aaker and Andy Smith,
Empowered by Josh Bernoff and Ted
Schadler, Open Leadership by Charlene Li,
Enterprise 2.0 by Andrew McAfee, Succeeding
with Agile by Mike Cohn, Buy-In and
A Sense of Urgency by John Kotter,
as well as my own book, The Leader’s
Guide to Radical Management.
Thus the discussion will cover the five big shifts
that these books propose to
reinvent management and so make
the world safe for storytelling, knowledge
management, innovation and pretty much
every other creative activity in organizations
that traditional management seems intent on
trying to kill. So it's going to be a big, lively fun

discussion at the KM Institute on
