What “Boss-less” Firms Can Teach Us

What “Boss-less” Firms Can Teach Us | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

A handful of “flat” firms are inspiring industry leaders to rethink the organisational hierarchy. But what’s so special about these firms, and why now?

#Bossless work: not only it's possible, but it has great advantages!

Rutger Berman's quote in the big blue box takes us back to Aristotle. The purpose of school and education are to offer a life well-lived. Work, in whatever form, will be less about pay and more about feeling one is of use. This is not an invitation to the large corporations that already look for ways to reduce the amount of one's pay cheque.

By Kev Cooke. In talk of possible futures, we’re often presented with ‘all or nothing’ scenarios. . . ‘This will happen. This won’t happen’. . . The certainty and the drama make the headlines, but more likely, neither prediction will be entirely correct, the truth will lie somewhere in between – or somewhere else entirely.

The Hybrid Organisation | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

Algorithms are already being used to aid legal work, journalism, and recruitment and to expand human capability. Assumptions about the type of jobs that will be automated are starting to be turned on their heads as a new class of ‘robot’ managers emerges. Meanwhile the blockchain ecosystem is creating the conditions for the emergence of distributed autonomous organisations that can operate outside human control, and make new ownership and value-creation models viable. What does all this mean for the world of work?
