Interesting point. I agree that the language “self-management” is limiting. Self-organising organisation is a bit of a mouthful though! :) Plus, it’s not the organisation that’s self-managing, really, it’s the people in it. For me, neither term (self-managing or self-organising) is particularly inspiring or accurate when used to describe the amazing autonomous teams I’ve met, read about and worked in. Sometimes I use the term manager-less to be clear when I’m talking to others but then that’s a deficit-type term which isn’t great either. Responsive is a popular term but again, doesn’t necessarily mean self-organising. I wonder if “self-leading” teams is better?? The term management seems less and less relevant and it was, after all, invented in the industrial age.
