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.
Elise Shapiro at Qumulo has been one of the primary thought leaders at Qumulo and our distributed management system of structures here. Qumulo engineering would not be the same without her, from our self-organizing & re-organizing teams, to our "community service" programs to share the responsibilities of "management" across everyone in our flat org, to our near tittle-less "member technical staff" titles and more. A couple of blog posts written mostly by MTS folk on what's radical here:
So she my personal pioneer, just not known about widely yet.
Hi, Joost & Pim, two pioneers you should be adding:
- Chris Rufer, founder of The Morning Star Company, I believe no additional comment is required here.
- FDSA, a Spanish software company from Palma de Mallorca, in the route towards full Self-Management. I am currently studying it as part of my PhD research project. Its visionary leader and founder is Alejo Ecube, a sort of Spanish "Chris Rufer".
Hi Pim: yes, they are 50 people and growing (maybe as I'm writing, a few more). In this section of their website: https://www.fdsa.es/del-empoderamiento-a-la-autogestion/, you can check FDSA's path towards Self-Management, in the words of his founder Alejo Ecube, only it is written in Spanish (by the way, they guy on the left of the photograph is me, on my first Action Research day with them, in July this year). Here is a recent press release in a leading diary from the Balearic Islands: https://www.ultimahora.es/noticias/economico/2019/10/11/1112649/fdsa-programacion-confia-doip.html, regarding their employment activities. If you wish, I could interview them in English in the name of Corporate Rebels as I'll be flying to Mallorca for another Action Research session with them pretty soon. Best regards. Daniel.
In the summer of 2017, we flew to Bilbao (Spain) to visit one of the most inspiring companies we've seen in 4 years of travel. The company? K2K Emocionando. Their business? Turning traditional companies into highly progressive ones. Their success? Unparalleled.
As you know, we're in business to make work more fun. Ideally, we could help all companies around the world to do that. But not today. Today, I'll share a practice that's simply not for everyone. This one, as you'll see, is exclusively for the bold and brave. If you belong to that group, read on. If you don't, stop reading.
As I wrote in August, we're upgrading our newsletter. Now, we are ready to go live. Plus, for the true rebels, we're launching a secret newsletter. The goal? To increase support for you to make work more fun. And to expand the Rebels movement around the globe. Here's how...
