This post not only "should" be required reading in college (not "just" business school) but would be eaten up by those under 30 who grew up studying and socializing in groups and thus would find it a gratifying affirmation of how they want to work (collaboratively) and in other parts of their life

Thanks for the comment. I wholeheartedly agree.

Question: how do we make this "required reading"? Suggestions welcome!

My past experience of Matrix Management in Global Purchasing at GM was exactly the same as outlined at the world bank. My Purchasing experience was that it took 40 pages of presentations at multiple levels and 30 weeks to source. It was a torture process of double guessing all the way and the employee turnover rate was 60%.It was a symbol of how GM lost its way.


The illusion of control by 'Gruesome Twosomes" is stifling and really very destructive. Let's co-create.

We make it required reading on online community sites that serve a profession or industry, where members can join for free to submit and vote for favorite tips/posts - say in monthly contests (perhaps 10 votes each month, able to change votes any time during the month) with the "cream" of the tips thus rising to the top of the community's visibility, in real time and each month.

This post would, of course, rise to the top.

Since I believe in both intrinsic rewards (Dan Pink) and extrinsic, contributors of each month's Top Ten winning tips would win prizes/gifts from companies that want to serve that profession or industry.

Most valuable contributors gain visibility for their work and satisfaction and "good practices" get noticed and hopefully, put into practice sometimes :-)

My take is that the problem is not so much that Agile and Scrum don't t scale. We now have many examples of large-scale implementations of Agile.
