We live in a World where we have slowly but surely created a kind of ‘culture’ derived from Taylor’s Scientific Management theory where the results in everyday’s ‘management’ practices sometimes seem to be more an enabler for ‘management convenience’ than what it originally was meant for. More and more people are arguing Taylor’s theory is not sufficient anymore to sustain societal development and evolution. We see (depending on the context), that we need additional management practices and/or the infrastructure to experiment with new practices to see if we can better support human evolution. And this might be where we can flip the strategy: transforming from traditional management convenience to postmodern convenience management. A theory and/or practice that makes organizing labour or organizing whatever needs to be ‘managed’ a convenience for all stakeholders involved, not only for the management who is initiating the change. This convenience management capability should enable society to better help each other, make labour fun and enjoyable for all, create win-win for all and is therefore an enabler for a more beautiful, abundance-driven, wealth-for-all driven, convenience-for-all driven world. Good luck with your quest finding out how to transform from a management convenience culture to a convenience management culture!
