Manage the System, not the People

Management and Leadership Module

We can only improve worker happiness when everyone feels responsible for management and when managers learn to manage the system instead of the people. In this module you will learn about the different management approaches and get an idea of what Management 3.0 is about in general. You will get introduced to the six views of Management 3.0 (Martie’s eyes) and the definition of every view.

What will you learn?

  • Different management approaches and what Management 3.0 is
  • Why we first need to change our own behavior before we expect other people to change theirs.
  • The definition of Management 1.0, examples and in which context it could work.
  • The definition of Management 2.0, examples and why not to use it.
  • The definition of Management 3.0, examples and the advantage of this approach.
  • Why management is important and always needed.
  • The whole organization is responsible for management, not only managers.
  • Behavior is the function of a person and their environment.
  • The six views of Management 3.0 and the definition of every view.
  • Why it is important to manage the system and not the people.

The job of management is to design and run the systems that support the company in achieving its purpose.
