I’m not certain how many of the usual readers of this blog are aware of the Management Innovation Exchange. According to their site:
What is the MIX?
An open innovation project…
The Management Innovation eXchange (MIX) is an open innovation project aimed at reinventing management for the 21st century. The premise: while “modern” management is one of humankind’s most important inventions, it is now a mature technology that must be reinvented for a new age.
The spur for a revolution in management…
Current management practices emphasize control, discipline and efficiency above all else — and that’s a problem. To thrive in the 21st century, organizations must be adaptable, innovative, inspiring and socially accountable. That will require a genuine revolution in management principles and practices.
An online clearinghouse and a virtual laboratory…
The MIX helps to accelerate the pace of management innovation by energizing and organizing the conversation around the most critical challenges facing managers today — and by providing a practical platform where they can document,share and develop their leading-edge ideas and practices.
A stage for management innovators everywhere…
The MIX is designed for all those who are frustrated by the limits of our legacy management practices. It’s for all the inspired thinkers and radical doers who believe we can — and must — find alternatives to the bureaucratic and disempowering management practices that still rule most organizations.
From Lean Thinkers to ROWE-heads to anyone looking for a way to impact the currently dysfunctional concepts of what work is and shift it in a new direction, I strongly recommend checking out the site. There is also a MiX LinkedIn Group you can join.
