The Wikipedia link talks about the concept and has a link to the movie that was made as well.
Why not introduce this concept to Managers within organizations? This concept will help build a community of Managers who are committed in helping each other.
There is a lot of expertise in any organization. It remains within the persons concerned and rarely gets to the benefit of others.
When newer Managers are in spots of bother, they dont know whom to approach, usually. They are hesitant for various reasons.
There is a need for an informal setup in the organization that morally binds the (expert) Managers to coach the (novice) Managers.
Problems are always present for any Manager - how does he solve it? He takes the help of a peer or a senior Manager within the organization. What happens if the senior Manager has a problem? He asks another one and so on, goes the chain of activities.
All it takes for the chain to start is for one Manager to help another in need. He can then ask the one he offered help to repay the deed to another Manager. This way, one can cover all the Managers in the organization and bind them in a way that no formal roles or hierarchies will. The camaraderie between the Managers will be a treat to watch, thanks to this small gesture.
Increased goodwill between Managers within the organization
Best Practices sharing by an informal network
Problems get solved as quickly as they arise
The Senior Management should be asked to start this initiative and start various chains within the organization and track it grow.
