- 1G1. The premises of the MM 2.0 paradigm can be divided into organizational and leadership premises.
- 1G1i. Organizational premises are based on systems principles.
- 1G1ii. Leadership premises are based on humanistic psychology.
- 1G2. Organizational premises include:
- 1G2i. There are two dimensions in every organization, not one.
- 1G2ii. The organization is a system.
- 1G2iii. The team is the lowest level “whole” in an organization. Teams serve to integrate individual parts (elements) into a whole (segment).
- 1G2i. Productivity is a result of maximizing team activities.
- 1G2ii. Organizations need management. Teams need leadership.
- 1G3. Leadership premises include:
- 1G3i. Most people do need to work, but they also seek satisfaction from their jobs.
- 1G3ii. Individuals are intrinsically motivated.
- 1G3iii. Employees are adults; so are their leaders.
- 1G3iv. You cannot control others.
- 1G3v. We learn through experience.
- 1G4. This means there are two levers for moving from the VM 1.0 paradigm to the MM 2.0 paradigm:
- 1G4i. The Organizational Lever changes the management systems of the organization, which affects how everyone in the organization behaves, particularly the leadership team.
- 1G4ii. The Leadership Lever changes how individuals on a team interact with one another.
