Some readers told me they have used Moving Motivators during job interviews.

Some readers told me they used Delegation Boards on management teams.

Some readers told me they adopted Merit Money to get rid of bonuses.

I just visited REA Group in Melbourne, Australia, where they use lots of Management 3.0 practices, and have great experiences to share.

How to Be a 10x Better Speaker with 20 Benefits

Last week, one conference attendee told me my presentation at Agile Tour Toulouse was perfect.

It was very kind, but I didn’t believe her.

In five years, I have spoken at almost 100 conferences and joined a similar number of community and company events. Thanks to the many discussions I had with event organizers, I think I now understand how to be a more valuable speaker.

A popular topic in the new one-day Management 3.0 workshop is the OKRs system for performance measurement. (See Google’s YouTube video here.) Instead of explaining what OKRs are, I will just share with you the result of my first iteration. If you read this, you will get the general idea of how the OKRs system works.

Practices, Not Platitudes

Practices, Not Platitudes

I recently took part in a conversation about compensation of employees. Some readers offered criticism on the Merit Money practice, described in my new Workout book, claiming that Merit Money is just another way to incentivize people. The feedback I received was, “Money doesn’t motivate people”, followed by, “Don’t incentivize people” and “Just pay people well”.

Let me explain why I think this advice is useless.
