Wanted: suggestions for new Bucket list pioneers
We are always curious to discover potential pioneers for our Bucket list. Do you have suggestions for us? If so, please share them with us, and tell us why you think this pioneer should be added to the list.
Suggestions for the bucket list? No, I'd say:

Hi, sure, We are already implementing most of the organizational principles that you mention as the new ways to organize, here are some examples:
- self managed teams,
- leaders as servants but still leaders
- strategy work done by the employees and leaders together
- full ability and trust in any employee to make any decision needed to deliver what the customer needs
- balance between work and private life is focused
One big difference between us and others is that we have done it for a long time and do it fully i.e. not just on paper. We have also some experience in how you have to be able to adopt to other organizations where the hierarchy still is norm i.e. where they "want to talk to the boss".
Also one lessons learned is that in many countries legislation makes it hard to implement an organization where you trust the employee and leaders are not monitoring. You have to find ways around it.
