Deleted from Bucket List: Brewdog
The recent negative news about Brewdog was a big disappointment for me as I often referred to them as an example. You guys mentioned them as well and I understand your reaction of deleting them from your bucket list…
But wouldn’t it be a great opportunity to get in touch with them and try to understand their journey and how they believe things went wrong and how they plain to improve this?
I am afraid that by ‘deleting’ them we are getting close to a ‘cancel’ culture/approach and are missing out on important lessons by not better analyzing the root causes…

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.
Today marks an important day in Corporate Rebels’ vaunted history: We're embarking on a new adventure to radically shake up the world of work. How? We're launching a new company together with some of the most inspiring workplace pioneers in the world.
