Strathausen Leading When You're Not the Boss

Answer the questions that arise when managers and workers
need to adjust to unfamiliar leadership roles and rules in flattened
organizational forms. Leading When You’re
Not the Boss provides a conceptual framework that you can apply when
assessing your own organizations and work. The book discusses the underlying
ideas necessary for a shift from a culture of hierarchies to one of
relationships and the establishment of intrapreneurial and holistic work

This book supports the trend in many corporations toward
flattening parts of their traditional top–down hierarchical management systems
into more egalitarian, democratized, and distributed organizational forms. It
analyzes the weaknesses of "management" culture at a time of ever
more rapid change and complexity in the business world and illustrates how
flattened organizational units increase agility, innovation, and efficacy.
Moreover, it discusses how individuals can exercise effective leadership
despite lacking the command-and-control authority of conventional bosses and
ways for organizations to cultivate effective "post-management"

Especially in the technology sector, large projects have
become too complex to be mastered by any single leader. Drawing on his
experience as a senior manager and executive consultant for a number of Fortune
Global 500 companies, Roger Strathausen analyzes the situations and benefits
that motivate companies to adopt flattened organizational forms. He shows that
empowering a multi-talented group to manage itself by horizontal cooperation
can deliver products with more speed, efficiency, innovation, and nimbleness
than a solo boss could, while yielding higher employee productivity and
retention rates.

With an entertaining mix of real-world examples and an
episodic HBR-style fictitious case study, the author illustrates throughout the
book how his leadership lessons can be serviceable only when intelligently
tailored to the dynamic complexities of specific situations, including the
personalities and competencies of the people involved.

initiative for the joint benefit of the enterprise and personal professional

cooperation with peers, as opposed to passively receiving orders from appointed
