Introduction to Tools

Work with the following tools and trigger questions to set your goals and scope, analyze your management functions, define levels of decentralization, and learn about common pitfalls:

  • The first Tool - Goals of Self Management Trigger Questions  - allows you to think through the goals of self-management by yourself or with your work team. Capture and prioritize your goals and use this output for validation with your initiative’s key stakeholders.
  • The next Tool - Management Functions Matrix - serves to define your approach to self-management based on concrete management functions. Describe your management functions and then allocate decision-making rights to self-managing units, while ensuring coherence with the rest of the organization.
  • The guidance document Common issues and how to deal with them discusses some typical real-world problems, allowing you to consider how to deal with them in your organization.
