To be or not to be self-programmed?

As far as I know there are two edges in management.

One is predefined rules (programs) according to which people should act. This works if people understand such rules in the same way and if these rules are possible to observe (people usually don’t read long rules, if it isn't their job).

Another one is a creation of behavior patterns. People can be encouraged to form some habits (programs) and after that even a weak signal from outside can start the habit. To do this, people must be classified to use them when the specific work will be needed for the system.

From the personal perspective truth can be somewhere in between. You can use these questions and check the rules and the habits. It doesn’t require data bases and even computer – just find the answers and correct your actions.

This light (not bulky) structuring allows you to be self-programmed and filter the signals from outside.
