In a world of unrelenting change and unprecedented challenges, we need resilient and daring organizations.

Unfortunately, most organizations, overburdened by bureaucracy, are sluggish and timid. In the age of upheaval, top-down power structures and rule-choked management systems are a liability. They crush creativity and stifle initiative. As leaders, employees, investors, and citizens, we deserve better. We need bold, entrepreneurial organizations, and as elegant as change itself.

The challenge organizations face is they see bureaucracies as an end in themselves rather than a means to achieve outcomes and order, to do that in an ever-changing world you need to be agile and make sure bureaucracies are servants, not a master.

In Humanocracy, Gary Hamel and Michele Zanini make a passionate, data-driven argument for excising bureaucracy and replacing it with something better. Humanocracy lays out a detailed blueprint for creating organizations that are as inspired and ingenious as the human beings inside them.
