Working across organisations and working with organisational sovereignty
I work for a local alliance of 7 partner organisations. I am looking for examples of networks and alliances, or businesses that have worked to build a partnership arrangement, in any sector. Do you have any examples of businesses or organisations that work in this way? Or where they have managed to change ways of working across a number of organisations?
I have already found the Santa Cruz Mountain Stewardship Network in the US, and will be talking to them, but looking for other examples too. Thanks
In 2012, Haier gave 12,000 managers a choice: "you can leave, or join our new structure." Some left, many stayed and joined one of 4,000 small independent companies within Haier—the so-called 'microenterprises' (MEs). Many academics, management gurus and other companies were amazed with how the ME structure stimulated entrepreneurship. So why the hell would Haier fiddle with it's structure, again?
Yash Pakka is a compostable tableware manufacturer in Faizabad, Uttar Pradesh. Their products are made from sugarcane waste and are 100% compostable, and the factory is even powered by its own power grid that uses rice husk as fuel. But they’re innovative not just in terms of what they make, but how they organise.
