I created the management sub-reddit many years ago. The management sub-reddit provides links to worthwhile management content and the members indicate those links they liked. Here is a list of the most popular links added in the last year.
- People Don’t Fail, Processes Do by Terry Smith on The Lean Post
- The common objection to seniority pay is, “It’s rewarding dead wood!” My response is, “Why do you hire dead wood? Or why do you hire live wood and kill it?” – Peter Scholtes by John Hunter on The W. Edwards Deming Institute Blog
- If you adopt only one agile practice, let it be retrospectives. Everything else will follow. by Woody Zuill on the Mob Programing blog
- People who believe they can manage everything often prove themselves capable of managing nothing. by Henry Mintzberg on his blog.
- Culture is what culture does. Culture isn’t what you intend it to be. by David Heinemeier Hansson on Signal v. Noise
- Lean Knowledge Work by Bradley Staats and David Upton on Harvard Business Review
- The more you learn and the more you improve, the more you understand how far away perfection really is. by Kevin Meyer on the Gemba Academy blog
- Working at Netflix by Brendan Gregg on his blog
- Hospitals Can’t Improve Without Better Management Systems by John Toussaint on Harvard Business Review
- Seven Agile Best Practices by Esther Derby on her blog.
- The Aim Should be the Best Life – Not Work v. Life Balance by John Hunter on the Curious Cat Management Improvement Blog (this blog, obviously)
- Don’t “Defeat” Your Customers (and Yourself) by Jim Womack on Planet Lean
It isn’t like “most popular” is some important ranking; but it does seem likely the links that many people in the community liked will be of interest to many of the readers of this blog.
