How much do I want to read more? 7/10

This looks like a very nice "biography" of an uncomon company, going from traditional to "open", and a tremendeous success.
It reads very well, and is very inspiring. Congratulation for this man who had the courage to change everything for the better with such an open mindset.


A company that lets you set your work hours, your salary, asks you to review your boss.
Extraordinary true story of a 34 years-old CEO. A change so vast and successful that Semco has been visited by over 400 corporate representatives from around the world to see it in action.

A more humane, trusting, productive, exhilarating, rewarding way.

For years now, executives from some of the biggest and best-known companies in the world, IBM, General Motors, Ford, Kodak, Bayer, Nestle, Goodyear, Firestone, Pirelli,
Alcoa, BASF, Chase Manhattan, Siemens, Dow Chemical, Mercedes- Benz, and Yashica among them, have been making an unlikely pilgrimage to our nondescript industrial complex.

When I took over Semco from my father twelve years ago, it was a traditional company.
with a pyramidal structure and a rule for every contingency.
