Publisher's Summary

In a world of unrelenting change and unprecedented challenges, we need organizations that are resilient and daring. 

Unfortunately, most organizations, overburdened by bureaucracy, are sluggish and timid. In the age of upheaval, top-down power structures and rule-choked management systems are a liability. They crush creativity and stifle initiative. As leaders, employees, investors, and citizens, we deserve better. We need organizations that are bold, entrepreneurial, and as nimble as change itself. Hence this book. 

In Humanocracy, Gary Hamel and Michele Zanini make a passionate, data-driven argument for excising bureaucracy and replacing it with something better. Drawing on more than a decade of research and packed with practical examples, Humanocracy lays out a detailed blueprint for creating organizations that are as inspired and ingenious as the human beings inside them. 

Critical building blocks include: 

  • Motivation: Rallying colleagues to the challenge of busting bureaucracy 
  • Models: Leveraging the experience of organizations that have profitably challenged the bureaucratic status quo 
  • Mindsets: Escaping the industrial age thinking that frustrates progress 
  • Mobilization: Activating a pro-change coalition to hack outmoded management systems and processes 
  • Migration: Embedding the principles of humanocracy - ownership, markets, meritocracy, community, openness, experimentation, and paradox - in your organization's DNA 

If you've finally run out of patience with bureaucratic bullshit....
If you want to build an organization that can outrun change....
If you're committed to giving every team member the chance to learn, grow, and contribute...

...then this book's for you. 

Whatever your role or title, Humanocracy will show you how to launch an unstoppable movement to equip and empower everyone in your organization to be their best and to do their best. The ultimate prize: an organization that's fit for the future and fit for human beings.

???

About the book: Learn the correct pronunciation of Adidas! About the review: 1. The Heading is marked as optional and, yet, I cannot post my review without one?!? 2. Why does my review have to be a minimum of 15 words? "Learn the correct pronunciation of Adidas!" contains very meaningful and to-the-point 6 words: what more do you need?

Nice organizational concept but is it possible?

I suspect that few corporate leaders have the authority and incentives to sustainably implement such a program.
