Not too many controversial topics here. Here are the turf topics we’ll discuss: • Figure out how to neutralize the politics around turf: I have no magic here … it’s been going on since people began to congregate … but take it seriously because it undermines effectiveness. • Forget titles: you have to organize your companies to collaborate, support collaboration and enable it with integrated technology … you may or may not need “chiefs,” or “directors.” • Forget about consensus-based decision-making in flat management structures … forget about big teams. • Command and control works … even in decentralized organizations – which, by the way, I’m not that crazy about. • Innovation is special: make sure your organizational structures encourage business and technology innovation.
