Welcome to our new forum!
Welcome to our brand new forum! It's the place to connect, learn, share, and take action to make work more fun.
I'll use my very first "topic" to invite you to create an account and introduce yourself right here.
So, who are you? Why are you here? And what do you want to get out of this forum?
Look forward to get to know all of you!
I work for a Housing Association in South Wales and I don't currently have a job title.
My organisation is currently very traditional in structure and management practises. Thankfully my leaders want us to become more progressive. The team I work in are the first step towards this so we're rebelling against the system.
I'm here to be inspired by the community and to share our experiments in the hope that they start conversations.
Awesome! My name is Florine. I'm lucky enough to work with Corporate Rebels, through their new venture 'Revolt'.
With Revolt we help companies transform to progressive workplaces, so that employees and customers are happy and the company has a healthy growth.
I'm here to connect with other rebels, to learn from others, and to share my own learnings and insights.
I live in Amsterdam and love to get into the ocean or mountains when I have time off.
Hi, I'm Linda and work for a rather large business software company in Germany. The company started fairly progressive 45 years ago, but has grown more traditional as it grew in size.
Now we have pockets within the organization looking to reintroduce some of those values, (lack of) structures, and ways of working. I'm part of one of those pockets :)
Here, I hope to encounter like-minded people, open to sharing and inspiring others.
Naturally rebellious Welshman living and working in Orkney for the time being, bit of a rolling stone though so who knows where gravity will take me next! it's all downhill from here! Hahahah :)
Just sat sipping my brew, blasting out some filthy Drum & Bass on Soundcloud, whilst perusing this new forum with interest...
Enjoyed the CR session in Orkney a few weeks back. Was interesting to see and hear from Joost & Pim, hope you guys enjoyed the magnificent Orcadian scenery and great historical sites. Also the sandwiches were good, despite the lack of plates - made for some good problem solving skills though; who needs plates when you have saucers leftover from the earlier coffee?! ;)
I am keen to see how this new paradigm can be achieved but doubtful that it can be shifted to in monolithic organisations such as the NHS and Local Government.
I do think that in such institutions there will be an innate resistance to any form of change as it will be seen as threatening to the status quo and the petty fiefdoms and power bases which some will have accrued.
Just a personal belief, doesn't make it right! Perhaps i'm too much of a cynic?
Great stuff guys! Looks awesome!
I am Mathijs van Schijndel, 32, live in Eindhoven and currently ‘work’ as an independent change agent and business consultant. If not in work-mode I love to travel the world and meet new people. Just got back from Cambodia, yieehaaaa!
Curious to find out how this forum thing will work out!
Keep. moving! Cheers!
Ford's management model became the most influential one in the early 20th century. It embraced the possibilities enabled by the assembly line. This was followed by the General Motors' model (i.e. the multidivisional firm), and later by Toyota's model (i.e. Lean). More recently, electronic technologies (like computers and the Internet) have enabled the rise of the global 'Agile movement' with Spotify's model as the poster child. But now, with more and more IoT technologies, what will become the most influential management model of the future?
Maria Popova writes, “The history of the world is the history of telling others who and what we are—from tribal markings to national flags to family crests to pronoun-specifying email signatures.” How we choose to tell our stories—and what artifacts we choose to highlight—alters the way we hear our past, experience our present, and create our future.
Just over 5 years ago we quit our corporate jobs to start Corporate Rebels. Our mission was simple: to make work more fun. And it hasn’t changed. Five years later, it’s fair to ask: "Where do we now stand in the workplace revolution"?
