Along the lines of badbossology.com comes a new website, managementmalpractice.com. Based on a book by Craig Hickman, Management Malpractice: How to Cure Unhealthy Management Practices That Disable Your Organization, the site offers lots of free information, resources, and room to vent.
What is management malpractice? The helpful list of frequent questions defines it as "Any organizational practice or activity that makes it difficult for people to perform their jobs, develop themselves, coordinate with others, find fulfillment, create value and get results for themselves and their organizations. It occurs when management principles or corporate values are preached but not practiced and always involves an abuse of power, knowledge or relationships."
The website takes on the role of vigilante against this phenomenon, offering sections to See it, Expose it, and Prevent it.
For example, employees are asked to submit their anonymous stories on management malpractice. If 25 or more stories are written about the same company, the site says, a memo will be sent to that organization outlining the abuses and offering recommendations on correction and prevention.
For a fee of $10, an employee can get an anonymous memo sent to his or her company without the 24 other people. A sample memo is available here.
Other resources include surveys and polls, discussion forums, "find a consultant," book listings, and more. Although some of the info promotes the book and its author, there's still plenty of good stuff here, such as a list of 50 best practices for preventing management malpractice.
