In today’s business environment, speed is critical, as is the ability to remain agile and nimble in an ever-changing landscape. Decentralization and delegation can speed decision making, but only make sense in organizations where alignment is strong. Toward this end, organizations and leaders should relook at how they are managing their people through an approach we call Freedom Within The Framework (FWiF). This framework addresses a core question: how much freedom can you give your people while avoiding unnecessary risks? Conversely, how can a manager know if working constraints are too tight, leading to lack of trust and agility? Freedom Within the Framework addresses this conundrum.
This program will guide the assessment of freedom appropriate to each team. The program engages participants with the Six Zones of FWiF in an interactive session, where each participant will have a chance to experience how to apply this management style, which is particularly suitable for the digital era. This program builds on material from Iclif’s most recent book, Open Source Leadership: Reinventing Management When There’s No More Business as Usual (McGraw-Hill, October 2017), by Rajeev Peshawaria.
