Interesting to see the results of the survey and I guess I'm not all that surprised by what I'm seeing. Over 50% go for 'not at all' or 'mediocre' which is a good representation of real life I believe. 13.2 'bucket list material' is maybe a bit high compared to the general public. But that's what brings us together, so good to know many in the community feel that way. A lot to be learned from each other!
Working in an industrial company that has existed for over 100 years is challenging. Mainly I believe what hinders us from being pioneering is the lack of good leadership. Employees growing up in an corporate culture with selfishness and competition internally, certainly haven't provided good leaders. And having 50 000+ employees is sure hard to deal with. All the alignment and bureaucratic over head caused by a big organisation.
Would be nice to see some good examples of big organisations with 50 000+ employees.
Thanks for sharing, and yes, hard to find those big fish. Haier is one example with 50,000+ employees (80,000 actually). Furthermore, we haven't found them. Just Handelsbanken with 14,000 employees and Buurtzorg with 15,000 employees.
Would be interesting to know if there are any people in the community working in big companies in which they have created (or know about) parts of the organization working progressively? Anyone experience with that?
This year we launched the Corporate Rebels Academy and our first course on new ways of working. Four cohorts of students have studied the world's most progressive organizations. Today, we announce 2022 class dates and open enrollments. You can apply now!
My company, Happy, was not in happy shape! Sales had flatlined over 5 years. We were making a substantial loss. We had enough in the bank to last just 6 months. And we had parted company with the M.D. of our largest department.
There is a lot of comfort in knowing your way of running meetings is actually effective. Comforting because you know people aren’t annoyed by being in a pointless or unfocused meeting, and also because you know something is actually getting accomplished.
