A SET OF INTERVIEWS WITH OUTSTANDING MANAGEMENT PIONEERS
In search of a unified firm-market theory and practice of organizing
In these interviews, we learn directly from the experience of remarkable companies and thought leaders that are bravely walking the path towards self-management.
We ask fundamental questions regarding the future of organizing in the 21st Century, based on emerging trends pioneered both by Haier Group, with its Rendanheyi model, and many other well-known trailblazers from different industries and parts of the world.
We'll be hearing the insightful perspectives of John Hagel, Doug Kirkpatrick, Jabi Salcedo Bilbao, Michele Zanini, Bill Fisher, Martin Reeves and more.

Read our Summary for Thinkers50's book
This article offers a review of the meaning of ecosystemic organizing in the wake of changes that — unfolding in real-time — are today hard to predict in their long term impacts, despite appearing already as far-reaching, structurally changing and ground shaking.
“… we may be witnessing the dawn of a new age of organising. The developments of this new wave will happen … in the realm of fluid cooperation for a world in constant flux more than at the scale of single market opportunities and in the groove of competition.”
