Re-inventing Organisations

Thinking about how to reinvent your organization?  Frederic Laloux’s book “Reinventing Organizations” is rapidly gaining critical acclaim as an in-depth commentary on how radically soulful, pioneering organizations are beginning to emerge all across the planet. In this ground-breaking work he outlines the three major breakthroughs shared by these organizations: self-management, striving for wholeness, and listening to evolutionary purpose.

One of the organizations that Frederic researched was Dutch healthcare non-profit Buurtzorg. Founded in 2006 by Jos de Blok and a team of 4 nurses as a new nursing care delivery model, Buurtzorg has become the largest neighbourhood nursing organization in the Netherlands, with over 9,000 employees. There is no management structure and a head office with just 40 people. The results are: highest quality, lowest cost and best employer of the Netherlands.
