People here may have heard of Ricardo Semler and Semco, a $300
megabuck Brazillian company that is organised along lines of
democracy. Not the sickly doppelganger "representative democracy" that
we all live under, rather its a direct democracy that looks a lot more
like anarchy than anything else.
I'm reading "The seven day weekend" at the moment, written by Semler.
It's a jaw dropper. He makes the current corporate leadership of the
world's great companies look like feudal warlords (well, really they
already looked that way). Buy it. Read it.
Here's a good recent interview with Semler.
Has anyone else read any of his work, or had any experience of Semco? Thoughts?
