Visit to UK
Hi Our organisation in Western Australia (Enablewa) has implemented a self managing philosophy/structure across the organisation of just over 560 employees. We are 18 months into the staged transition and very excited about what I see and hear. We have had some challenges and continue to have more. We have multiple sites across a largish geographical area. I have the opportunity to visit the UK in late March and wondered if there were people out there that would be willing to talk about their experiences and learning.
That sounds like a great journey, Robert. Would love to know more next time we're in Western Australia (we visit once or twice every year). Two things:
1. Do you have more information to share so I can read more about what you have been up to?
2. We'll share this through our social media channels, so we can activate our wider community and hopefully get you the contacts you are looking for.
Hi Brendan Thanks for getting in touch. Our journey started with Buurtzorg and I had the fantastic experience of visiting Buurtzorg and a couple of other organisations in the Netherlands a couple of years ago. I learnt an amazing amount and really got inspired by what might be possible. I'll contact you through your website. Hope we can catch up. I'll be in the UK 25th March to 1 April.
Ford's management model became the most influential one in the early 20th century. It embraced the possibilities enabled by the assembly line. This was followed by the General Motors' model (i.e. the multidivisional firm), and later by Toyota's model (i.e. Lean). More recently, electronic technologies (like computers and the Internet) have enabled the rise of the global 'Agile movement' with Spotify's model as the poster child. But now, with more and more IoT technologies, what will become the most influential management model of the future?
Maria Popova writes, “The history of the world is the history of telling others who and what we are—from tribal markings to national flags to family crests to pronoun-specifying email signatures.” How we choose to tell our stories—and what artifacts we choose to highlight—alters the way we hear our past, experience our present, and create our future.
Just over 5 years ago we quit our corporate jobs to start Corporate Rebels. Our mission was simple: to make work more fun. And it hasn’t changed. Five years later, it’s fair to ask: "Where do we now stand in the workplace revolution"?
