Oh, and of course: John Seddon, Vanguard Method. His latest book is "Beyond Command and Control". Get a taste of his thinking on this episode of the Bosslevel Podcast, ranting about "agile" as the most dysfunctional management fad ever...

What about Maria Pia Thoren from Agile People? With her work, often aligned with Beyond Budgeting, and her book she has been able to give a recipe for transforming HR in an agile way.

Another interesting case is Talent Garden with its founder Davide Dattoli. It’s focus not just on coworking, but on innovation and start- up support through incubation.

At the beginning of my entrepreneurial journey, I found Guy Kawasaki's advice in "Rules for Revolutionaries" very inspirational and enlightening. Many of your current posts are picking up ideas from his publications. He continues to inspire me day after day, although he doesn't come across as a guru. "The Art of the Start" was another one of my bedside books.

You should meet Stefan Hildt who runs Universal Express in Poland. Very much a realist, he has an outstanding, progressive business mind. Stefan is a big fan of Jack Stack who spent time with him because of an interest in what the Hildts (father and son) were doing in Poland immediately after the fall of communism. They had a lot to talk about because Stefan had developed a very similar management style before getting to know about Stack's work. Stefan says, "Go see Jack Stack as soon as possible." Maybe these two should be a focus for you in 2020? A family friend, Corporate Rebel Ellen knows Stefan very well.

Brandwatch, a social intelligence company in Brighton, UK might be worth a visit. I wrote my master thesis there and really admired how everything feels like family. I wouldn't name it an innovative workplace but the feeling of togetherness is amazing. I usually travel twice a year to Brighton just to visit my former colleagues 😊

Wrote a tiny post about my time there:

Thanks for the tip about John Seddon, Raymond. Did you read the book? Should I read it?
