The Two Strategies

Two strategies to help managers leverage autonomy on their teams more effectively:

  1. The question to ask is not whether you should give teams autonomy, but what kind of autonomy you should give them. Autonomy is neither all-good nor all-bad.
  2. Introducing an element of randomness into how teams are assigned may improve performance in some contexts.
