How to implement self-organization?
Are you looking for ways to apply more selfmanagement?
Based on the book we designed 3 workshops to help you learn from expereinces with (aspects of) self-organization.
Workshop 1 – self-leadership – How are you doing as a self-leader? What is needed for individuals, hierarchical leaders and others to start self-organizing?
Workshop 2 – self-steering teams – What does self-steering mean here? How can you introduce self-managing teams or improve their efficiency in your organization?
Workshop 3 – Self-organization – What means self-organization in practise? How can you start applying it? How do you create a collective ambition together?
An additional workbook ‘Do-it-yourself leaders’ supports workshop participants in their learning process.

Some examples of recent projects
Biotech start-up had raised sufficient funds over its four years of existence to attract competent people and build a strong R&D foundation. But the CEO found it increasingly difficult to keep his team focused on the same direction. Also, the need arose to introduce roles and structures in this still small enterprise of 80 people. BMC was asked for help by the Board as they assessed the moment as critical for the continuation of the firm.
BMC did an inventory of the situation by interviewing 25% of the employees – including the Management Team. Results were analyzed and an action plan was launched. Main actions consisted of helping the leadership to build an effective team that could communicate more efficiently via better quality discussions and better meeting structures. In addition, coaching for some of the key people added to the change effect. Implementation of these changes included a discussion of the outcome of our assessment with all staff members present and the definition of counter measures together to keep the intended changes on track.
What we achieved in one year of supporting:
- A more efficient meeting culture
- Higher quality of leadership
- Use of roles and structures to work more effectively
- A change of organization culture towards a more open and transparent climate
- Higher satisfaction of the employees
