In Episode 32, Michele Zanini, author of “Humanocracy,” joins us to discuss the evolution of management. We examine what makes traditional firms less resilient than their employees, why changing management is not only good for companies, but for the whole of society, and what this new paradigm looks like. We ask ourselves how we can build companies based on new principles, like markets, ownership, and paradox, to out-grow our bureaucracies already.
The episode was recorded in English.
The episode in a nutshell: Human’s favorite quote from Humanocracy is “Bureaucracy is like pornography; it’s hard to find anyone who’ll defend it, but there’s a lot of it about”, Mary-Jane enjoys a principle-based approach that goes on a structural level; and Michele thinks we need to stop copying what others do and experiment ourselves – revolutionary ideas and evolutionary change.
