Management 3.0 is considered a new management way, differently from M1.0 and M2.0 that were based on command & control and efficiency with a high command chain respectively, M3.0 goal is to focus on motivated teams around clear goals.

There are some practices for roles definition, skills mapping, teams motivators identification, delegation exercises and what they call kudo cards. The last one is a very simple practice to encourage appreciation and recognition between team members and the reason I’m writing about it today is that there is an online tool you can start using today for virtual teams 😉

The tool is called Kudobox (http://kudobox.co/) and it’s from Happy Melly, the same group responsible for Management 3.0 books (you can shop for materials on management30.com).

As mentioned, the online tool is very easy to use, you just need to select a card (from the options: good job, many thanks or totally awesome, the site has other options) and then type the text (as all good feedback, it’s nice to provide context and it’s even better if you send it right after the action you are recognizing happens).

The card can be sent as a link or shared in twitter. If you test it with your team, don’t forget to share the experice here 🙂
