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.
The idea of self-management tends to be received with both interest and cynicism. Amongst the varied reactions, there is one recurring doubt that I hear time and time again. That doubt is deep. That doubt, is trust.
