Non-Hierarchical Management

Me ha parecido extraordinaria esta guía de consejos para gestionar o administrar un equipo de trabajo de manera anti-jerárquica.

You want to get something done. But it’s too big to do it by yourself, so you bring in some friends to help out. In your dreams, all your friends just “click”, understand exactly what it is they’re all supposed to do, and do it quickly and effective. In reality, this almost never happens.

In order for any team to succeed, they need someone helping them all stay on track — someone who we will call a “manager”. The word manager makes many people uncomfortable. It calls up the image of a bossman telling you what to do and forcing you to slave away at doing it. That is not effective management. A manager’s job is to do everything they can to make things happen. The ideal manager is someone everyone would want to have.
