  • Gary Hamel on Managing Generation Y – the Facebook Generation – Gary Hamel’s Management 2.0 – WSJ – Gary provides a great summary of how organizations and leaders will have to function differently once the "Facebook generation" is in power. I especially like #11: Intrinsic rewards matter most. Extrinsic rewards (read bonu$e$) are having a success backlash and may actually undermine performance and job satisfaction. Traditional organization structure and function is in for some radical changes.

It is telling that of the six ways, 3 address organization culture, 2 address processes, and one addressed technology. Supporting again my assertion that culture is the biggest challenge of the E2.0 3-legged stool.
