Ricardo Semler: how to run a company with (almost) no rules
Inspiring video by Ricardo Semler about the application of wisdom in companies by asking questions: why do we do it this way? Why? According to Semler, we live in a democracy, but democracy is far from being applied to the place where we spend so much time: our work. When he took over the company from his father 30 years ago, he threw out 75% of the managers. Gradually, he allowed his employees to determine their own working hours, their activities and ultimately their salary. Why a large head office where you have to go every day? Why clock in on time? It sounds like a utopia, but the company went from 4 million to 400 million in turnover. Recommended.
