Frédéric Laloux on a new management paradigm
When rising complexity pushes corporate hierarchies to their limits, the only meaningful response is a paradigm shift, argues business thinker Frédéric Laloux. Author of the best-selling book “Reinventing Organizations”, Laloux advocates a people-centric approach with radically streamlined structures that facilitate active involvement and self-management. But can that really work? Talking with Egon Zehnder, this Belgian visionary recounts exemplary success stories, explains why the future belongs to self-managing organizations, and describes what he means by ‘wholeness’ and ‘evolutionary purpose’ – and why they represent important breakthroughs.
