Get Rid of Under-Achievement Through Real Autonomy

Below you see a free e-book. Contributors include some of the smartest people of our age. All of the stuff in here is extremely interesting, but specifically, I would like to point you to page 25, where Dan Pink talks about autonomy. He begins with a hard-hitter “Management isn’t natural” and says that it can die, lose its relevance and usefulness. He says that if you want to move away from mediocrity and want stellar performance from your employees, you need to provide them autonomy in 4 areas:

Task – What they do

Time – When they do it

Technique – How they do it

Team – Whom they do it with

Take note. These are important things. They sound simple, but are quite a departure from the “usual” way businesses are run.
