What are the most offbeat management tools in robot manager software? Part 2

Posted by

In the previous post, I described what managerial tools a robot manager can have to solve managerial problems. The tools were based on a managerial method or technique described in the literature and sometimes (or rather rarely) used by managers. Today I will present some ideas for tools based on the history of events, that is, not being some independently existing mechanism, but working on the basis of the previous use of such a tool and the accumulation of knowledge about the user.

As before, do not analyze the feasibility of the tool. I assure you that all of them can be designed and implemented, as well as other managerial tools that I have already made and are available on the platform http://transistorshead.com/, if you want to see how they work, email me. I will send you the login and password to the platform.

So a robot manager can still have such managerial tools to solve organizing problems:

Group Decision Meter: a tool that studies how people make decisions in a group, what influences those decisions and why. Then, based on usage history, the tool can suggest users’ own style, and the robot manager will learn how his team members make decisions.

Team builder: the tool measures where a team is in its lifecycle. It works by asking questions to team members to answer the basic questions it measures at each stage of team building.

Ingenuity Meter: a test that measures employee creativity and conditioning, where ideas come from, when they come to mind, how they manifest and why. The tool presents historical results and draws conclusions about employee ingenuity.

Manager stylist: a test of management styles, but the usual kind you might find in training courses. The tool will include simple survey questions (with a cafeteria), a selection of sentences, a description of the situation and the need to respond to it in an open-ended way (there must be a mechanism that learns these situations, drawing conclusions by keywords, based on the history of the user’s responses).

The Green Boss Theater: a team role test, similar to the Style Manager, including simple survey questions (with a cafeteria), a choice of sentences, a description of the situation and the need to respond to it in an open way. Since team members change their team roles over time, the tool will gather historical knowledge in what situation a person took on a particular team role.

My time machine: a test of time management skills, task planning, choosing what to do first, what to do next, choosing what to do myself, what to have others do. The tool will gather knowledge as a function of time on how a human manager and his team members cope with time management.

This, of course, is not the end of ideas, for managerial tools, which will first be used by a human manager, and then, based on the accumulated historical knowledge, it will be possible to equip a robot manager with similar features to its human prototype.

At this point, I wanted to recommend to Polish readers the source of my inspiration to make a robot manager, which I read when I was still a child. The fact that I was inspired by this book was brought to my attention only recently by a close friend. It’s time to make a human manager’s double to manage a team!

The book entitled. “The double of Professor Rawa” by Alfred Szklarski:
