Maverick: The Success Story Behind the World’s Most Unusual Workplace

I borrowed the book Maverick from Venkat couple of weeks back. The tagline of the book was "The success story behind the world’s most unusual workplace".

I started reading this book and within 2 pages, i knew this is not a regular business book. It talks about the idea of participative management and
how Semler has transformed his company. 
In Semler’s own words , how he arrived at Semco’s democratic
organizational culture. Because Semco’s management style is so unusual.
A Very inspiring book.

Today, In IT Industry we are struggling to implement the concept of self-directed and self – managed teams. He has done it in manufacturing industry (in 1980’s) and has demonstrated it successfully over the years.

Results from the Transformation:
A way in which workers
decide when and where they work, who gets hired, and how much they get
paid. 🙂

A Must read for managers or anyone who is running a company.

I really enjoyed reading this book (

My Special Thanks to Venkat for lending this book to me. Thank you Sir 🙂
