The Bottom Line: Command & Control Management is vanishing not because of human nature (which dictates that we control every situation we can get our hands around) but because the workforce will no longer tolerate being treated like children. To survive the current WorkQuake ™ , the "Great Recession" and thrive in the Knowledge Economy, Companies need Employees who are capable of innovation, creativity and commitment to the Company’s Vision. Companies won’t get that long term behavior by imposing Command & Control techniques on their Employees during this economic crisis.
Questions: Is your Company reverting to Command & Control? And will this hurt long term performance?
