Self Managed Work Teams – The Principles for Success
Wed 26 April 2017, 17:30 – 20:00 BST
Self-managed work teams used to be thought of as the way of the future. SMWT would revolutionise the way that organisations were run, with teams operating independently with no need for supervisors or line managers. The self-managed team organises its own workload, manages its own absence, allocates tasks and responsibilities and recruits its own members. The concept of SMWTs is based on the principle that people in our business are smart, reliable, competent and committed to our success. They are based on the principle that experienced, committed workers don’t need managers and can be empowered to take ownership of their own function.
Despite their initial surge twenty years ago, the idea of the self-managed work team seems to have disappeared off the radar. Or are we on the precipices of their second coming? There is a growing interest in the idea of SMWT and their links to innovation.
Dr Andy Kelly has seen great success stories of self-managed work teams and is going to share with you his experience and what he has learned are the principles of success when it comes to these teams.
This interactive session will give you a lot of food for thought about how power influences your structural decisions and how to give more power and decision-making responsibility to the people who know their jobs best.
