Financials in Buurtzorg
I took from a book that the financials are not handled by the independent circles in Buurtzorg but by De Blok personally. How does he decide to keep/kill circles? Is it up to him?
Here is the quote: "He also feels responsible for taking timely measures to ensure that the organization’s financial health is maintained." (p. 18 Self-ManageMent: How it Does work)
Is this correct?
Earlier this year, I wrote about VkusVill, the Russian supermarket chain that is reinventing the retail industry. The Russian pioneer proves that you can rapidly scale a profitable chain of retail shops by letting frontline employees make all the important decisions. They do this with impressive results; the company is not only growing rapidly (CAGR 40%), it also manages to keep bureaucracy and hierarchy to a minimum, as upper management accounts for less than 10% of the total payroll.
