Virtual management?

31 Mar

I wrote a post today on Viget’s blog about a WSJ Blog article called, “The Facebook Generation vs. the Fortune 500,” by Gary Hamel.

The topics in the article coincide with the findings discussed regularly by Penelope Trunk of The Brazen Careerist (who actually cites the Hamel post) or Richard Florida of the Creative Class; namely, that to attract the most creative people, the workplace must evolve beyond the traditional notion of bureaucracy and archaic hierarchies.  The social governance of the web is the common underlying comparison — where ideas are borne, networks form and grow around those ideas, and success follows in all shapes and sizes.

I wonder, is it possible to fully manage to the intrinsic rewards this generation seems destined to seek?
