Zappos eliminates managers. Maybe Dilbert won't have anything to complain about. But in reality is this a good idea? That question doesn't go far enough. There are really two questions. Is it a good idea for Zappos? And, is a good idea for your organization?

sometimes the activists decide not to play nice before they even try to talk to the target companies

The "reverse" flat organization - employees that have many bosses. Does this make sense or not, and how to manage it...

+Jamie Flinchbaugh Interesting data that seems to hover around that particular area of 1980-1990 when some fundamental changes took places. What they were we may not know for a while.

We could be looking at healthcare fragmentation and delay, as pointed out by the author, of the backdraft from the Reagan years which had such an impact on our society.

Private boards or public boards? Public boards obviously pay much more, but many of the requirements are much greater. The ability to just make good contributions through dialogue is more straightforward on a smaller, private board. But when a company and a board is in trouble, I think the issues end up very much the same.

Are you developing your people with only good intentions, or do you really have a plan?

Don't bring anything to him unless you don't want to see it again. I brought my grandfather's pocketwatch. He had it for 3 years and never completed the job. He told me it would be done by a certain date 8 times spread out over 15 months. And in the end, he even lost one of the parts. And to find out anything, I had to show up. I called him over 30 times without one return phone call and even wrote a letter, and not once did I get a response. This guy doesn't not deserve to be in business.
