To us, Unmanage is more than the name of the app.

The idea behind Unmanage is to give up centralized control. Stop trying to have a top down process where the people doing the work on the bottom (who also happen to be the ones that know the most about the work being done, and presumably, how to do it) are given the least control. 

Instead, hire good people, and let them do their work. Good people are self-motivated and self-managing. Don’t try and control their workflow. Look for the minimum amount of involvement needed to keep things on track and only do what’s necessary to keep your team aware of the big picture. Anything past that isn’t helping you create, it’s helping you control.

Give people tools to do good work, point them in the right direction, and let them run free as much as possible. It won’t be perfect. But it will be better.
