Introducing a new Management 3.0 Practice

You created a new or discovered a practice and think it could become a Management 3.0 Practice, what next?

First reach out to the Management 3.0 Team to share your idea. Sometimes a practice will be completely new, sometimes a combination of existing practices, and sometimes it is an existing practice, like OKRs, that you believe should be part of our practices. We will check if the practice is in-line with the Management 3.0 principles and is a fit with our other practices. Does it maybe connect to an existing module, or to other already existing practices?

If we all believe it is a good idea, we will create a practice page. A page that describes the practices, and how it can be used. We will also see if we can connect it to an existing module, and if necessary, update the module. 

If there are materials involved, we will also make sure they comply with our Management 3.0 style.
