Join AmCham partner Harvard Business Review and Tatarklubben in welcoming Gary Hamel in a webinar on ‘Humanocracy – Creating Organizations as Amazing as the People Inside Them’.
Our organizations are failing us. They’re sluggish, change-phobic, and emotionally arid. Human beings, by contrast, are adaptable, creative, and full of passion.
This gap between individual and organizational capability is the unfortunate by-product of bureaucracy – the top-down, rule-choked management structure that undergirds virtually every organization on the planet. Invented in the nineteenth century with the goal of turning people into semi – programmable robots, bureaucracy is deeply dehumanizing. Despite all the hype around flat organizations and agile processes, bureaucracy is growing, not shrinking. The author lays out a detailed blueprint for creating organizations that are fully human and free from the shackles of bureaucracy.
