Corporate Rebels for Non-profits
I am very interested in what Corporate Rebels are doing and I have founded and been running a free youth technology and leadership non-profit club for 6 years in CA in the US. We are a all volunteer-run organization that offers free learning opportunities to youth, grades K-12. We have a flat organization; everyone is equal, and I have been trying to encourage formation of self-managing teams and move towards self-governance. Any resources or advice for motivating a volunteer workforce who can walk at any time that is lead by influence without money, authority, title, or budget?
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.
