Email and paperwork have invaded homes. Most people know how to work on Sunday evening, but no one yet knows how to go to the cinema on Monday afternoon. A new way of work is needed. A new way of working has emerged at Semco of which the tell-tale signs are: hammocks where people rest during the day; Retire-a-Little plans; the end of the head office; and the abolition of control and boarding school mentality. The results have been inordinate success for 20 years; practically non-existent turnover; and an organization that covers an enormous range of business activity, from machinery to environmental consulting, and from real estate advisoy services to new business start-ups, smoothly and coherently. It's time for a new way of work to be created. This book shows how this can be achieved.
