Expand the 'rebel movement' (e.g. to the field of education)?
It may be a bit off topic, but I can imagine that other topics/fields (than corporate organizations) could also benefit from some 'rebels'. For instance, 'educational rebels' and/or 'economic rebels'. It may be interesting to apply your approach of reaching out to and interviewing many pioneers, sharing the lessons learned with the world, and starting a dialog online and offline. These fields are off course different, but 'make education more fun' would also be a great mission.
Do you have the intention to expand the 'rebel movement' (either yourself or under your wings) to other fields?

The 2022 FIFA World Cup has been appearing in the news for all the wrong reasons and is already one of the most controversial sporting events that have been organized. There have been many concerns about Qatar’s suitability as a host country but even more touched on is the treatment of workers hired to build the infrastructure. This is something that FIFA should have been aware of when the decision was made to host the event in Qatar due to the knowledge that the country relies heavily on migrant workers and its exploitive labor system.
For the last two years, we've been working on a book about Haier, the Chinese manufacturing firm reinventing management as we know it. Writing this book was a long, interesting, and intense process, but we managed to wrap up the final manuscript of the book earlier this year, titled "Start-up Factory." Although the book will only be published in September 2022, we gave Corporate Rebels Academy community members early bird access to the final manuscript. Here is a selection of their reactions to the book.
