Visiting inspiring entrepreneurs and organizations
Hello, nice to hear you exhist! I would be more than happy if I could be involved or involve you in getting to know more examples of Rebels/visionary organizations in Italy or in Europe. I have over 22 years experience in big manufacturing multinational corporations and I am actually working as a freelance executive coach and I am a trainer. Deeply believing we need to change the organization structures and dynamics as they are stuck and dying (from people's perspective and not only). I need to get in touch with exhisting organizations that are succesfully riding a new wave, this to be able to believe it is possible and communicate it to the world extensively! Hope I am clear on my deep wish! Thanks
You're right on time! We're publishing the Italian version of our book and we're looking for more pioneers from Italy. Could you share the ones that you think are progressive enough to research? And if so, do you have more information on them and on why you think they're worth visiting?
Most of us know monopolies are bad. “They have no incentive to deliver better products or to get more efficient.” And if a monopoly can do whatever it likes, the victim is likely to be the customer. If it exists outside an organization, measures can be taken to end that. Within organizations, creating monopolies seems standard practice, but why!?
“It was like being with a parent that didn’t really want us”, says CEO of GE Appliances, Kevin Nolan. He explained: “The one hope everyone had was that Haier bought us because they wanted us, and we were curious to find out what that would mean”. 4 years later, we visited to find out how GEA was doing. Getting to talk to them was harder than we thought: “Our managers and executives are currently working on the assembly lines.” They are doing what!?
