Today I’ve stumbled upon a very interesting book that has been promoted on Facebook by highly esteemed sources. It’s the book “Reinventing Organizations” by Frederic Laloux:
It’s basically about a newly emerging type of organization applying revolutionary (un- / self- / non-)management practices. There’s a short vimeo video about the core concepts in the book:
And there’s a longer talk by the author about the book in which he goes into more detail and presents some examples and answers interesting questions from the audience:
I haven’t actually read the book, yet, because I’ve only started with the videos above, but it’s a high priority for me to do so as soon as possible, because this is a highly relevant and energizing topic. I hope you find the topic interesting, too. It seems to point towards a core transformation in organizations, and therefore in society at large.
I’d be glad to discuss anything you have in mind in relation to this book. It actually suggests multiple topics that have some connection with this book. One of them is the topic with the title “$100 M Budget for a Better Future Organisation”, which has actually been inspired only by the title of the book, without me reading or watching anything about it!
Another topic that suggests itself in relation to the book is how to apply its insights to the small community we have here – or even to all the organisations that we personally relate to. That’s a topic that I want to create once I’ve finished reading the book.
Until then, please be inspired, come up with feedback or criticism, and read the book if you like.
