We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the emptiness of the center hole that makes the wagon move.
We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want.
This is Gary Hamel’s pyramid of human capabilities and one argument for management innovation. Tomorrow’s companies needs to be better at tapping the top three levels of the human capabilities to create the value that makes a difference.

I think Gary Hamel is on the right track but I sometimes wonder if he is not underestimating the depth of the transformation we are going through. His argument seems to presuppose that there is a place (management position) from where we could stand when orchestrating this management innovation process. I doubt that is the case… I think that the positions manager are looking out from is constituting a perspective from which it is impossible to conceive what really needs be done.
I agree. There is no ‘still center in the turning world’ for management, any longer.
I no longer am interested in the future of management, just the future of work. I think tools and tempo will dominate change in business, not top-down managerial efforts.
