Jacqui Hogan's curator insight, October 16, 10:51 AM

2 Zappos in one week! Earlier this week at an HR forum, I met someone who had a tour of Zappos a few weeks earlier. They came away full of praise for their management approach - especially their open attitute to empowerment. Is their approach a step too far? While it may look very open and flexible, it is quite bureacratic with it's 'circles' . I worry that it is great for those who shout loudly, but not so good for the introverts (or even those who hate loud music).

 

Or do you think you could implement it in your company?
