Working in the dark sometimes?

Project Managers and Leaders are still being taught Management 1.0 and its not working any more.

Imagine working in the dark, stumbling around without clear direction or guidance. It’s disorienting, frustrating, and ultimately unproductive. Similarly, getting lost in a dark forest can be a daunting experience. You feel lost, uncertain of which path to take, and without a clear sense of direction. In both scenarios, the lack of light makes it difficult to navigate and make informed decisions.

Leaders and project managers face unprecedented challenges in today’s rapidly changing business landscape. The traditional Management 1.0 approach, with its hierarchical structures and command-and-control mentality, is no longer sufficient to thrive in the digital age. It’s time to embrace Management 2.0—a new paradigm emphasizing adaptability, innovation, employee empowerment, and customer-centricity. In this blog, we’ll explore why leaders and project managers must transition from Management 1.0 to Management 2.0 and the benefits of this shift.

In business, adhering to outdated Management 1.0 practices can often feel like working in the dark or getting lost in a dark forest. These practices, characterized by rigid hierarchies, top-down decision-making, and a lack of employee empowerment, can hinder progress and limit organizational success.

Born 1965, San Antonio, Texas and lives in Dallas, Tx.
Mr. James, Ronald, Maverick holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology at The University of Texas, San Antonio.

Mr. Maverick or JR as many call him is a “slick” but warm and friendly character in our upcoming book on the DevOps Mindset. Mr. Maverick cares about his IT team very much and could charm the socks off a Texas Longhorn. JR is liked by many in his organization; however, he is not as well trusted by the Overlords as he used to be. Mr. Maverick has a group of loyal staff, including Mr. Barker a bit of an opposite to JR. Of course, Mr. Barker would never call him JR; he would only call him Mr. Maverick because well, Mr. Maverick is his boss. Mr. Maverick has held many IT positions in the past, including starting as a Sales Professional for HP and IBM mini and mainframe computers. Over the years he has risen through the ranks to hold this senior position by delivering using high-paid consultants and Big name firms. He also received his promotion from outsourcing to a foreign country where he was able to reduce his IT spend significantly. Recently he has discovered (actually this was made painfully aware to him by the Overlords) that both the Offshore roadmap and use of external consultants was not giving him the value and velocity for his IT department, and he was probably paying more than he bargained for

So, after hearing a talk at a DevOps event by the Agents of Chaos, JR decided to enlist them to help with their digital transformation roadmap and help improve the value, focus and velocity of his department. However, MR. Maverick has a few ideas about agile and DevOps, something he has heard about for a while and read in various CIO magazines; he thinks of these as Marketing terms and something that can be bought. While Mr. Maverick has held on for many years to traditional IT ways of working he has come to the end of his tenure if he doesn’t do something fast and get DevOps working quickly as he has promised to the Overlords providing him with a little more rope to get the transformation completed more quickly as they view his IT department ageing, procrastinators who are not able to keep up with business demands. JR says in his mind, “I will get it done, they don’t call me Maverick for nothing!“
