I thought putting out a radical management thought for the day (#RMtftD) would be a cool thing to do. It would attract attention, stimulate conversations, and improve my own learning. If there was one part that I underestimated, it was the last point. It is a challenge to come up with something interesting to say every day. So I have been reading more and reflecting more on what happens around me.
BTW – the RMTftD has also been a winner on the first two points. I now have over 210 followers, up from 140 when I started two months ago. I have gotten really encouraging feedback from my early retweeters, and stimulated some interesting conversations, like this July’s discussion on why management innovation is so difficult.
On good profits, bad profits and the power of market position
These tweets were largely inspired by Fred Reichheld, The Ultimate Question:
On change innovation and management
These tweets were largely inspired by Don Reinertsen, Second Generation Lean Product Development:
General cool stuff to stimulate thinking
Why is management innovation so hard to apply?
This last tweet sparked several an interesting twitter exchange with Steve Denning and Don Reinertsen and several blog entries including:
Again, I would like to thank Don for what I think is the most important of all these thoughts: “I am a fan of open intellectual systems.” There is no one single right way of doing things, but many right ways. Perhaps there is a best way for you and I am sure you will find it by learning from what is out there and building on it to meet your needs.
