MBA Talk Webinar series
MBA Talk 1-Finished
Brave new working world: Holocracy and beyond
Discussants: Ard-Pieter de Man (VU Amsterdam M&O), Joost Minnaar (Corporate Rebels)
Tuesday 22 September 2020, from 7.30 PM till 8.30 PM.
Is holacracy just a new hype or do self-managing organizations work? And, if they work, (when) do they work better than traditional organizations? These and other questions around self-managing organizations are currently discussed in research and business practice, but it is still not clear whether self-managing organizations deliver what they promise. For this reason, we have invited Professor Ard-Pieter de Man (VU Amsterdam) and Joost Minnaar (Corporate Rebels) to share their insights about holacracy and to discuss the pros and cons of self-managing organizations.
Join this webinar to:
- discuss the pros and cons of self-managing organizations;
- learn if and when self-managing organizations work better than traditional organizations.
