Better management with fewer managers.

What Management 3.0 is About

There are a lot of management models and theories out there and they all sound great. The problem is that there’s a lot of theory, which we don’t always know how to implement in practical terms. For example, what can you do concretely on a Tuesday afternoon to work better with your colleagues? People need actionable advice, things they can start doing next week. That’s where Management 3.0 comes in.

Management 3.0 is not another framework, it’s a mindset, combined with an ever-changing collection of games, tools, and practices to help any worker manage the organization. It’s a way of looking at work systems.

Gain Effective Management Skills: Management 3.0 follows the systems thinking idea that 95 percent of the performance of an organization is the result of the whole system, not the individual. Management 3.0 examines how to analyze that system to come up with the right solutions for better and effective leadership across organizations.

Can anyone be a leader? Can anyone manage a team?

We believe management is not only the manager’s responsibility, but that it’s everyone’s job! Leadership pursues the goal of growing and transforming organizations, which are great places to work for. They care about having engaged employees because when this happens the work is improved and clients are happy. We’ve realized that almost every industry is ripe for change and ready for a new view on management. Management 3.0 is that future of management.

Management 3.0 is redefining the definition of leadership with management as a group responsibility.

It’s about working together to find the most efficient way for a business to achieve its goals while maintaining the happiness of workers as a priority.

Management 3.0 is a global management revolution that brings together thousands of project managers, mid-level managers, CEOs and entrepreneurs, developing solutions together, using games to encourage employee feedback and team collaboration.

In leadership trainings, we usually talk on a meta-level. That’s important and that’s good. However, what is often missing are practical tools to connect with practice. With many leaders working in the huge company I work in, I see a great opportunity to make a difference here. However, being “only” Scrum Master, I am excluded from the trainings and coaching programs for leaders. Hereby I see the opportunity to develop more helpful leaders again.
