Standards-Based Management

Be a Great Boss.

CEOs trust them, and employees love working for them.  Competent, caring, inspiring:  be respected as a great boss.

Great bosses build trust and collaboration. They let executives delegate with confidence.

Great managers lead innovative teams and successful projects. They run effective meetings and set clear direction and priorities. They’re the bosses everyone respects – and who build a reputation for their organization as a great place to work.

But being a great manager requires command of the three critical standards.

A Simple, Scalable System

Standards-Based Management is detailed in our book, Atoms & Orchestras. Like musical notation, it gets any size group onto the same page. One simple language, three clear standards, and four 1-page tools relieve the miscommunication and friction that’s too common at work. The Toolkit shows how to apply the standards to your organization.

Competent, Caring, Inspiring

The Center for Management Terms & Practices is a manager development organization and the standards body for general management.  We provide the technical, ethical, and training standards of management.  The Index, the technical standard, is applied through the tools in the Toolkit.  We support managers who believe management is a calling, an opportunity to help others fulfil their potential.
