Organizations without management
Inventing meaningful structures
Jos de Blok with his work for Buurtzorg is one of the global pioneers of the new way of »reinvented organizations«, presented in the famous book of Frederic Laloux. Buurtzorg was founded in 2006 by Jos de Blok, a former nurse. His new organization is extraordinarily success - ful! Having grown from four to 10,000 nurses in its first ten years and achieving outstanding levels of care and a market share of 60 percent. Internationalization started by launching in Countries like Sweden, US, Japan or China. Clients and nurses love Buurtzorg. Its 10,000 employees operate entirely with self-managing practices and are supported by fewer than 50 staff people. Fluid, natural hierarchies replace the fixed power hierarchies of the pyramid. Local teams of 10 to 12 nurses work almost completely self-organised, do their own recruiting and purchasing, contracting for specialized medical or legal expertise when needed. This kind of organisation is not just inspiring healthcare services, but also other private and public organisations and companies around the world being an amazing example of integral management.
