Delegate the Course, Trust the Trainers

Management 3.0 applied to courses means I delegate to motivated trainers, and trust them to self-organize.

This November month will be very exciting. At least, for me. 🙂 Alexandre Magno is the first in the world to do a Management 3.0 course (in Sao Paulo, Brazil) without me in the room. It wouldn’t make sense for me to be there, because the course is done in Portuguese!

Two weeks later there will be another course in Zürich, Switzerland by Peter Stevens and Mischa Ramseyer. And this will be the first time that the course will be given in the German language. No interference from Herr Jürgen in this case either. Danke!

And again two weeks later there is a course in Ghent, Belgium, hosted by Jürgen de Smet. Depending on the participants I assume it might be either in Dutch or English. Or French. Or whatever the Belgians have negotiated to speak.

Licensed Trainers

Management 30 - 400pxMy team and I now have 13 trainers in 10 countries getting ready to take over from me in 2012. Hopefully this means I will have more time for speaking, writing, networking and marketing. (And reading, thinking and dreaming.) And helping trainers to organize a great course.

It appears that some authors have a very command-and-control way of licensing their courses. But, as I’ve said before, we're trying to implement courseware licensing the Agile way. We delegate the course to motivated trainers; We trust them to do their best and self-organize; We put in place just a few constraints; We help them in any way we can to increase competence; And we stimulate the system so that it improves and beneficial outcomes can emerge.

This is exactly what Management 3.0 is all about. Isn’t it exciting? 🙂
