We're Launching The Corporate Rebels App. Get it Now.
Today is a good day. You know why? Today is launch day! We're launching a big update of the Corporate Rebels Academy. It includes an iOS app, Android app and a whole new community platform with so many new possibilities. Get excited. Here's a preview of what it looks like.
Building a global community of rebels
The Corporate Rebels Academy is the ultimate place to make work better. At the Academy, you can follow courses taught by the world's most progressive organizations. It's where you can learn all about radically new ways of working.
- Wanna run better meetings?
- Improve decision-making?
- Implement self-management?
- Move to a 4-day work week?
- Get better at remote working?
The courses are practical, hands-on, and full of real-life examples of pioneering companies from around the world. No theoretical bullshit, but practical help to change the way you work.
Plus, you'll join a global community of fellow rebels working towards the same.
After a first very successful year, we've worked on a significant upgrade for the Academy. The content is pretty much presented in the same way it was before, with text, video interviews, animations, assignments, and workbooks.
However, the community section has undergone a massive overhaul — it is now much more intuitive and has loads more functions. You can join events, form groups around specific interests, join various discussions, connect with rebels from around the globe, and share your progress with the rest of the community.
Plus, all of it is now available on an App!
Here's a sneak peek into the brand new Academy.
New courses coming up
Last year, we ran four cohorts of our first course: a six-week, in-depth course, titled "Understanding and Designing Progressive Organizational Structures."
In March, two new cohorts of the course will begin, and there are just two seats available. (Interested in joining? Click here for more information).
Aside from the six-week intensive course, we're getting ready to launch more brand new courses:
- In March, we'll launch an on-demand course titled "Run Better Meetings" in which you can learn how to get rid of boring meetings and replace them with engaging, fun, and highly participatory ones.
- In April, we'll launch an in-depth course on distributed decision-making. Learn how to boost engagement by turning every employee into a decision-maker.
- In May, we'll launch the first case study course, where we'll share, in great detail, how one of the world's largest self-managing organizations, Buurtzorg, works.
Plus, many more courses are being created at this very moment. Things are moving fast!

Today, we are launching another course in the Corporate Rebels Academy: “How Buurtzorg Works.” This inspiring case study of highly successful self-management explains how Buurtzorg, an organization with over 15,000 nurses, has pushed the boundaries of home health care in the Netherlands by operating with 100+ completely self-managed teams.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup has been appearing in the news for all the wrong reasons and is already one of the most controversial sporting events that have been organized. There have been many concerns about Qatar’s suitability as a host country but even more touched on is the treatment of workers hired to build the infrastructure. This is something that FIFA should have been aware of when the decision was made to host the event in Qatar due to the knowledge that the country relies heavily on migrant workers and its exploitive labor system.
For the last two years, we've been working on a book about Haier, the Chinese manufacturing firm reinventing management as we know it. Writing this book was a long, interesting, and intense process, but we managed to wrap up the final manuscript of the book earlier this year, titled "Start-up Factory." Although the book will only be published in September 2022, we gave Corporate Rebels Academy community members early bird access to the final manuscript. Here is a selection of their reactions to the book.
