Gradually, as each chapter dives into a specific episode with a radical idea, such as abolishing the pyramidal hierarchy with one with concentric circles, encouraging workers to start their own company and work from home, allowing employees to assess their manager's performance for routine evaluations, among others, the reader myself is on one hand quite impressed with how successful these democratic experiments in the workplace have gone, but also feeling like this book is almost like a company manual -- at times sounding a bit propaganda-ish "Here at Semco, we do things differently! From this he derives the phrase "diseconomy of scale". It sounds insane- but it works.

In my personal opinion, the semle of Semco was probably just right enough to execute such a transformation but I am Ricardo might disagree. Alexis Perrier on 09 Apr In any case, I still find Ricardo to be a very philosophical thinker with srmler bold ideas.
