Where are the cooperatives today l.jpg

Where are the Cooperatives today?

Are they lost between the public and private sectors?

It is time, especially now, to recognize the “social sector” in between (of non-owned and member-owned organizations)

It is time, in other words, for cooperatives to take their rightful place in a balanced society

Our efforts in development l.jpg

Our Efforts in Development

Began in 1996 with the International Masters in Practicing Management (www.impm.org)

In place of the MBA, it combines management education with management development

The focus has been on community building, which may be ideally suited to the social sector

What’s Wrong with Management Development

much that is wrong with management education (e.g., the AMPs as miniature MBAs), and more

  • Do managers need boot camp?

    They live boot camp every day; they need to step back and reflect thoughtfully on their own experience.

  • Should management development push people back into the functional silos just when they are coming out of them?

    It should open managers to the mindsets of managing.

  • Does a program that lines people up in nice neat rows foster creativity?

    The participants should own the classroom.

  • Do managers need to be sent out on projects?

    They are inundated with projects; programs need to use work, not make work.

A Noteon CoachingOurselves.Com

  • Management and Organization Development carried to Self Development

  • Small teams self-organize and meet, for example, over lunch for 90 minutes every two weeks

  • No consultant, no facilitator, no faculty, no professional coach; just developing themselves and their organization

  • They download topics (there are 50 +) and learn while addressing key issues
