Now more than ever we need organizations that are resilient, daring, and inspiring. Unfortunately, the typical organization, overburdened by bureaucracy, is inert, timid, and dispiriting.  We can and must do better.

In the book Humanocracy: Creating Organizations as Amazing as the People Inside Them (June 9, Harvard Business Review Press), world-renowned business thinker Gary Hamel and management expert Michele Zanini make a passionate, data-driven argument for uprooting bureaucracy and unleashing the human spirit at work. Drawing on more than a decade of research, and packed with practical examples, Humanocracy lays out a detailed blueprint for creating organizations that are as inspired and ingenious as the human beings inside them.

At the event, the keynotes will provide us a guide for organizations to become more adaptable, innovative and engaging places to work by applying the principles and practices of Humanocracy.
