Management guidelines


The importance of organising and coordinating joint action according to compatible guidelines and values increases as the complexity of the requirements demands increasingly fast, flexible responses.

The aim is to use a substantiated set of requirement guidelines to shape leadership behaviour and establish a clear leadership claim.

These guidelines then serve as a reference for practical leadership activities and form the basis for further leadership development.

To this end, desirable and undesirable behaviours in current leadership practice are to be examined and the criteria for expected leadership behaviour clarified.

The guidelines should include values as well as concepts for implementation at a practical level. Excessive and overly idealistic guidelines are counter-productive and should therefore be avoided.

All managers should be systematically integrated into the process.
