Fighting for freerecyling

Good management technique no 1.

Keep people in the loop takes just a little bit of effort. And if I was going to manage the creation of a new group then I would keep the following people informed:

  • the applicant for the new group,
  • any owners of nearby groups and
  • anyone else who needs to know in the organisational hierarchy.

I would set up a distribution list and everyone gets every email regarding the application. That way, using common courtesy, no feels left out and there are no surprises. It also helps in cases somehow the decision makers have made a blunder (everyone does) and then there is a chance of nipping the problem in the bud by re-evaluating the decision. So many benefits…

I would not recommend an organisation where they reduce the distribution list to next to nothing. This leads to misunderstanding, fear uncertainty and doubt and makes your organisation look like a… So many drawbacks…

Now who do you think uses the latter model?
