  • 13. Meanwhile, what is HR doing?
  • 14. Yet there are so many potential areas for HR to shine
  • 15. Social Business: potentially transformational, but software alone cannot do the job
  • 16. Social business is not just a technology solution...
  • 17. But new tech & sharing culture create new possibilities
  • 18. We now have many alternatives to cascading hierarchy
  • 19. Some examples of extraordinary organisational structures that

  • 25. The Valve story: no management required
  • 26. “Valve has no formal management or hierarchy at all ... Now, I can tell you that, deep down, you don’t really believe that last sentence. I certainly didn’t when I first heard it. How could a 300-person company not have any formal management?”
  • 27. “... it takes new hires about six months before they fully accept that no one is going to tell them what to do, that no manager is going to give them a review, that there is no such thing as a promotion or a job title or even a fixed role...”
  • 28. “... it is their responsibility, and theirs alone, to allocate the most valuable resource in the company – their time – by figuring out what it is that they can do that is most valuable for the company, and then to go do it.”
  • 29. How do we get there from here?
  • 30. Protected spaces provide a low-risk starting point Performance ALPHA Services GOV.UK performance Transactions Explorer GOV.UK overview Departments and policy GOV.UK performance Departments and policy Departments and policy content had 1.46 million visitors last week, a decrease of 2% from the week before Web traffic Weekly unique visitors Unique visitors per week to departments and policy
  • 31. Leadership is even more vital, but management is not
  • 32. This is not your father’s ‘change programme’
  • 33. Fractal structures and resilience at scale
  • 34. A strong social fabric is needed for ‘tight & loose’ to work
  • 35. Why is this not job #1 for HR professionals today?
  • 36.
