This week I speak with serial founding entrepreneur, start-up investor and democracy reformer Hermann Arnold.
In 2001, Hermann decided to ‘build a company to fix the traditional way of working’, developing HR software and naming the company Umantis. He chose to run that company on a democratic basis, having the staff vote for major direction decisions, striking a balance between two worlds: hierarchy and agility.
- Mining the corporate shadow
- Removing internal middlemen
- Electing leaders
- Letting anyone make any decision
- A Henry Ford of self-management?
