Management Models, Values & Principles?

As part of the preparations for the Stoos Gathering I am collecting models, values and principles for management. Maybe you can help me?

There is of course my own Management 3.0 model:

  1. Energize People
  2. Empower Teams
  3. Align Constraints
  4. Develop Competence
  5. Grow Structure
  6. Improve Everything

And there are the principles of Steve Denning’s Radical Management:

  1. Radical-managementThe goal of work is to delight clients.
  2. Work is conducted in self-organizing teams.
  3. Teams operate in client-driven iterations.
  4. Each iteration delivers value to clients.
  5. Managers foster radical transparency.
  6. Managers nurture continuous self-improvement.
  7. Managers communicating interactively through stories, questions and conversations.

Of course, several famous management experts have offered their own models. Henry Mintzberg described his six-plane model:

  1. ManagingAction
    (doing and dealing)
  2. People
    (leading and linking)
  3. Information
    (communication and controlling)

Gary Hamel came up with his five principles:

  1. Future-of-managementLife (variety)
  2. Markets (flexibility)
  3. Democracy (activism)
  4. Faith (meaning)
  5. Cities (serendipity)

And Toyota offered a very simple set in the Toyota Way:

  1. Respect for people
  2. Continuous improvement

But let’s not rule out the greatest management thinkers of the 20th century. For example, Peter F. Drucker said there are five tasks for managers:

  1. ManagementSet objectives
  2. Organize
  3. Motivate and communicate
  4. Measure
  5. Develop people

And W. Edwards Deming’s 14 principles were described in Out of the Crisis:

  1. Out-of-the-crisisCreate constancy of purpose.
  2. Adopt the new philosophy.
  3. Cease dependence on inspection.
  4. Minimize total cost.
  5. Improve constantly.
  6. Institute training.
  7. Institute leadership.
  8. Drive out fear.
  9. Break down barriers.
  10. Eliminate targets.
  11. Eliminate management by objective.
  12. Develop pride of workmanship.
  13. Institute self-improvement.
  14. The transformation is everybody's job.

Did I forget some important management models, values or principles? Do you know any others I should check out before discussing how to accelerate global management warming?
