Now that the economy has tanked, it's time for corporate execs to remind their employees of who's who and what's what, right? Wrong, warns Bill Jensen in Work 2.0, his rousing but practical blueprint for creating the productive workplace of the future. Employees are any company's most important investors, Jensen reminds the forward-thinking leader; how their contributions of time, attention, ideas, knowledge, passion, energy, and social networks are respected and rewarded will determine the success or failure of the company. Think of Work 2.0 as the new contract these employees are wielding, their sophisticated manifesto for how to get a better return on their investment. It's no longer merely about healthy compensation, good benefits, and a foosball table in the corporate café; today's workers care about how easy it is to make a big impact, how much and how fast they can learn, and how efficiently what they provide is utilized. Jensen aims this motivational guide at leaders who want to attract and keep these savvy employee-investors, and teaches them how to embrace the asset revolution, give their employees better control over their own destinies, create and deliver peer-to-peer value, and become the type of extreme leaders capable of excelling in extreme times. The book is peppered with great quotes, useful checklists, and tips from leaders already succeeding under the new contract. --S. Ketchum -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


From the author of Simplicity-a powerful new approach to management.. With a new preface by the authorIn Work 2.0, Bill Jensen introduces us to a new breed of managers and organizations that are maximizing productivity, developing leaders at all levels, constantly innovating, attracting exceptional talent -and winning in the marketplace. The key to their success is recognizing that the most valuable assets in the company are the time, attention, knowledge, passion, energy, and social networks of the frontline workers. As Jensen convincingly argues, building a corporate infrastructure that gives people what they need to "get stuff done"-and then get out of their way-yields surprising results: greater alignment of personal and corporate goals, more satisfied employees and customers, and a competitive edge that keeps everyone moving forward together.

Work, Life, Control: Condensed and Clarified 12. Oktober 2002
Von Joseph Ottie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Bill Jensen has researched how we all work for more than a decade. I know: I participated in part of his study ten years ago.
Here's what I've learned both from his two books and his research...
* HIS SKILL is as an aggregator, simplifier, and clarifier.
I laugh at reviews that are obviously searching for the next big thing:
("Nothing new here. So-and-so said that back in...") He openly covers ideas that others cover. But he integrates them all together, and finds the patterns and overlaps between dots that we couldn't otherwise connect.
* HE IS PASSIONATE about respect for the individual.
Work 2.0 and Simplicity are not about *business* success. They are about people issues, and finding more ways for each individual to succeed.
He's holding leaders accountable for employees' time, energy, and
passion that they waste. When he wrote "It is no longer acceptable to say that there's *work* and there's *life* and it's up to employees to balance the two," he was taking a stand for all the thousands of people he's heard from during his research. Again, I was one of those he stood up for.
* HE ASKS tough questions.
Do not buy his books unless you're willing to look in the mirror. While he includes checklists and writes in a very accessible way, he is definitely not about mice-moving-cheese, or fish-throwing, or Five Steps to Eternal Bliss. He's seen our personal foibles and the stupidity in our workplaces, and he tells the truth.
* HE POKES a finger in the eye of those in power, then winks at us.
* HE RESPECTS his readers.
Sure, he gets some things wrong. I don't agree with all his findings or recommendations. But at the end of the day, he respects us to think more deeply and come up with better solutions because he played truth-teller and dots-connector. He sees his role as witness, reporter, clarifier, and provocateur. He figures we're smart enough to figure out the rest.
For me, that's more than good enough.

Manifesto for More Effective Workplaces 8. Januar 2002
Von Mary E. Boone - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Jensen has done an excellent job of redefining the notion of a "Best Place to Work." Instead of focusing on perqs, he talks about what people really need to do their jobs well. And he does it with the characteristic Jensen writing style: concise, candid, and humorous.
What I particularly like about the book is that Jensen forces people at all levels in a hierarchy to take responsibility for creating effective workplaces. It's not just up to leaders and it's not just up to the people who work with them to recreate a better work environment. He gives advice and concrete tools to both groups. The quick quizzes and mini case-studies in this book are particularly useful. The work on social networks is simplified, but very accessible and practical.
Full disclosure: I had a review copy and I am a colleague of Bill's.

Great Buy! A new map for uncertain times... 8. Januar 2002
Von Kris Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The dust will settle soon. Wrenching uncertainty may not go away, but we will have progressed. Or will we?
Jensen wants us to stop first, and ask new questions. Like: What returns should we expect for all that we invest into an employer? He states flat out that "for most employees, the more they invest in their company, the more they lose control of their own destiny." He details a new and different covenant. And tells the stories of a few companies who have started.
Just one page (77), his SimplerWork Index, and the instructions on how to use it, are worth the price of the book. When the Index asks us to respond to statements like, "My company is respectful of my time and attention, and is focused on using it wisely and effectively" -- Wow! It stops the platitudes, and energizes new debates about what it means to be in a "great place to work."
What makes Work 2.0 so useful and important is not that Jensen gets everything right. (I'd quibble with a few of his points.) It's that he's taken the conversation about work/life balance and the war for talent to excitingly new places. Get this book! Get lots, and give the other copies to people who need to "get it."

One of Year's Ten Best: Sleeper Hit! 22. August 2002
Von Steve Shilling - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This sleeper hit will turn out to be one of this year's ten most
important books. Published at the very moment scandals exploded and markets imploded, Jensen saw the need for us to take more control of our own future, and shows us how.
2.0 looks at work, with in-your-face truthtelling. For example, nowhere will the CEO&Guru authors of "Execution" tell you that "the leaders of great workplaces must accept accountability for life's precious assets" (how our time gets spent/wasted every day), or that today's leaders "must be willing to be challenged on, and address, work-level details." Jensen backs up those ideas with examples, and new ways work and have a life too.
Among the ideas and tools I found most helpful:
* A chapter on how to redefine our relationship w/ our employers
* A tool, The SimplerWork Index, that provides completely
new measures for great places to work
* New examples of how to build operations to meet the needs of workers and customers
* An unheard-of-commitment to personal productivity: Corporate commitments to helping each individual, not just the business, get more done with less resources
I believe that this book is ten-best-important because, at the very moment when marketplace and corporate foundations are being shaken, 2.0 asks completely new questions of us, of our relationship with those companies, and of what it takes for us to be our best. It shapes a completely new conversation about work, life, and what we want from each.

Guru of Gurus 22. August 2002
Von Chris Ernst - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A book by the title of "Management Gurus and Management Fashion" puts forth the argument that there are three master analogues or deep structures to explain how someone becomes a guru in the management field, or an idea tips and spreads like wildfire through our places at work. The three analogues are: Pragmatic analogue - grounded in expediency, efficiency, survival (a la Hammer and Champy); Righteous analogue - based on ethics, integrity, authenticity, and doing what's right (a la Stephen Covey); and the Social analogue - addressing human relations and connectedness (a la Peter Senge).
Well, if you buy into this argument then Bill Jensen is the "guru of gurus" because Work 2.0 sits squarely at the intersection of Hammer and Champy, Covey, and Senge. Jensen taps into the pragmatic by providing us all a wake-up call about how the time, attention, ideas, knowledge, passion, energy, and social networks of people will ultimately determine the success or failure of our places of work. He drills down into the righteous by challenging all of us to take on the responsibility of creating a better workplace, to speak the truth to those in power, and to quit the platitudes and go after our own unique destiny. And he brings focused attention to the social by stating that at the end of the day, the new contract is all about helping people to make an impact, to learn and grow, and to take our relationships to new levels.
Whether you are an employee and/or employer, read this book to be both challenged and inspired by the world of work, 2.0.
