The Growth Challenge: balancing control and empowerment
High-Tech culture, growth, bureaucracy
A common management issue is balancing control to focus on goals, and freedom to promote creativity and innovation. An ethnographic study of rapidly growing, high-tech company produced material for developing a simulation used in corporate training classes. The central issue is the tendency of growth to produce a more bureaucratic organizational culture. Significant attitude change was measured in employees attending those classes. Participants attending this session will experience the simulation, learn details of this successful culture, and hear how this simulation is used in a Leadership course.
