  • important role for coaching (learn to function independently) instead of direct leadership by a direct supervisor
  • emphasis on informal rather than formal participation
  • direct feedback from colleagues and coaches instead of performance and assessment interviews
  • Intensive use of an internal network (intranet / changing workplaces / informal consultations)
