Radical management involves changing the focus from stakeholders to customers, from controlling to enabling, from coordination to linking, from efficiency to improvement, and from telling to communicating.

Bob Hartman shares his experiences with Innovation Games®, collaboration exercises that dramatically improve the way people work together.
