(Beijing, May 19)  On May 18 and 19, the first academic seminar of Professor Lars Kolind, DeTao Master of Leadership and Strategy, was held at the School of Economics, Peking University. A total of 24 senior corporate executives participated, including Executive Director of Goldman Sachs Gao Hua Securities, General Manager of Guoxin Group, President of Beijing Lanxum, Vice President of Hopu Investment and President of Huajian Group of Chinese Academy of Sciences. He Xiaofeng, professor at Peking University and DeTao Master of Financial Investment and PE (Private Equity), was also invited to the seminar. He commented after the event that “We have finally found the Master we’ve been looking for!”

Professor Kolind covered a number of items in the two-day seminar and opened lengthy debates with students. Topics included thinking patterns of industrial and knowledge management, industrial and knowledge economy under the competitive situation of market, UNBOSS – the innovative thinking pattern of managing in the knowledge economy, the three key mechanisms of UNBOSS (target over interests, infinite organization structure, structure to mechanism and implementation) and how to apply UNBOSS concept into Chinese corporation. He integrated theory with practice and inspired students to approach conventional corporate management modes and organization structures.

When it came to the essence of UNBOSS, Professor Kolind explained how it could help corporate partners in generating increased value through synergy and in turn inspire a passion for corporate ambitions. Meanwhile, enterprises would allow them broad space for development. It would tailor posts to each individual in the overall corporate framework, encourage them to assume more responsibilities and devote themselves to work instead of merely accomplishing tasks assigned by the management.

启发商业领袖,提升企业效率

——德稻领导力&战略大师孔林德教授首届研讨会北大举行

5月18日-19日,德稻领导力和战略大师孔林德(Lars Kolind)教授首届学术研讨会在北京大学经济学院举行。高盛高华证券公司执行董事、国鑫集团总经理、北京立思辰科技股份有限公司总裁、厚朴投资副总裁、中国科学院华建集团副总裁等共计24位企业高管参与了研讨。北京大学教授、德稻金融投资及PE大师何小锋也应邀参加本次研讨会,并在会后点评道:“这才是我们要找的大师!”

在为期两天的研讨会中,孔林德教授主要就工业管理和知识管理的思维模式,竞争下的工业经济与知识经济,知识经济管理的新思维方式——UNBOSS,三个关键机制(目标先于利益、无限的组织结构、从结构到机制和实行)以及在中国企业环境中如何运用UNBOSS思维管理概念等方面进行讲述,并与学员展开讨论。大师将理论和实际紧密结合,引导学员颠覆式看待传统企业管理模式和组织结构。
在讲到UNBOSS管理模式的精髓时,孔林德教授告诉学员,UNBOSS能让企业各合作方通过协作产生更多的价值,并能让他们对企业的理想抱有高度热情。同时,企业也将赋予他们广阔的发展空间,在公司总体框架下设计每个人的工作岗位,让员工勇于承担更多的责任,全身心地投入工作,而不是只做管理者交代的事情。

在传统制造业中,管理者往往会将任务划分成每个人所能完成的工作量,员工各自为政,由管理层规划、协调每位员工的工作。但是在有些行业,如,知识型和服务型行业,情况就有所不同,这些企业的工作任务更具复杂性,要求员工要共享知识、紧密合作才能到达成功。管理者不会提供给员工所有的答案,员工需要发挥自己的想象力并结合所学知识来不断提高工作效率。而孔林德教授所讲述的UNBOSS管理模式正是经受住了实践的检验,可以达到这样的效果。

UNBOSS模式始于20多年前,即1991年的一个大型项目,该项目的实施让一个濒临破产的企业在短短5年内摇身一变成为了国际行业的领跑者。孔林德教授的这次力挽狂澜的“决策”被纳入了国际管理学研究的经典案例,并被十几部著作和上千篇论文引用。

在孔林德教授的启发下,参与研讨的企业高管进行了头脑风暴,从以往关注股东价值最大化到向企业员工共同体转变,从关注投资回报到注重客户满意度、品牌效应和社会回报,从关注有形资产到注重员工归属感……等等,企业高管们突破原有局限,展开了一场全新的思维变革。

研讨会得到了何小锋教授和学员们的高度认可与赞扬。学员们反馈,孔林德教授的课程针对性非常强,大师提出的理念与管理模式与传统模式相比,更注重人的主观能动性和创造性,这为中国企业的管理提供了有价值的参考。高盛高华证券公司执行董事徐婕说,“孔林德大师的课程设计合理,从底层基础层面启发学员思考,他的课程在思维创新方面有很大价值,这种创新管理思维理念不局限于某个行业领域,适用于各个领域的突破,非常值得在中国推广。”
