The No-Limits Enterprise: Organizational Self-Management In The New World Of Work

Publication Date: July 2019

There are two near-universal truths about the working world. The first being that people work best when they are happy and passionate about their work; the second being that people produce and innovate on their highest levels when they are not coerced to work, but are simply expected to keep the commitments they freely make to their colleagues and their organization. Today, companies cannot afford to have their employees disengaged and hating―or at least not loving―their jobs. Traditional management is broken. We need a new, twenty-first-century approach to management that will galvanize the minds―and hearts―of people giving so much of their lives to organizations.

In The No-Limits Enterprise: Organizational Self-Management in the New World of Work, Doug Kirkpatrick examines how companies can begin the journey toward becoming a twenty-first-century enterprise with limitless power for growth.
