Reinventing Organizations is important book discussing about future of workplaces. It goes through via history and via good examples different kind of organizational models. Most importantly it introduces the Teal organization thinking.
Best part of the book is the case studies and examples from organizations like Buutzorg, FAVI, Morning Star, Sun Hydraulics and some others. Those show that self organization and new kind of management is possible and has been possible for years already. Those are examples that every person interested in developing companies further should read.
Contents and the ideas in the book were really interesting and valuable. The style and structure of the book made it laborious for me to read. It could have been almost 100 pages shorted with better plan on the structure. That is the only criticism that I can say about the book.
It is important book and I really recommend to read it. Teal type of organizations will be something that will be in discussion in the near future in many different industries. This is a book that will help everyone to understand better what future might look like.
The least everyone should do, it to check the video that has been made based on the Laloux model (link to the video). It is no where near as extensive as the book, but it will give the basic idea.
