Transcend traditional bureaucracy for full potential
The No-Limits Enterprise: Organizational Self-Management in the New World of Work

“The new business environment is too complex for traditional command-and-control management, which is why self-management is emerging as a better way to live and work.”

—  Margaret Heffernan, CEO and Author, Willful Blindness

“As more and more organizations begin to focus on what the future of work means for them, they should also be thinking about what the future workplace looks like. Doug offers a compelling blueprint for transforming workplace cultures through self-management principles. Full of examples, tools, checklists and other useful resources, this book is both inspiring and practical.”

— Tony Bingham, President and CEO, Association for Talent Development

“Doug Kirkpatrick’s ideas on self-managed organizations grabbed the minds of the 2013 TEDxChico audience! He offered the type of challenge to old habits that brought people to ask themselves: ‘Why not?'”

— Laura Joplin, Speaker and Family Estate Representative, Author, Love, Janis

Modern organizational leaders face daunting technological advancements, powerful social forces and deep personal anxiety. To meet these challenges, the organizations of the future require creativity, innovation and high-quality leadership, all of which depend on collaborative human effort. Tragically, only about a third of American workers are engaged at work, with 16 percent “actively disengaged” — costing U.S. businesses around half a trillion dollars each year in lost productivity and human suffering. We need a new, people-centric 21st century management approach that transcends traditional command-and-control bureaucracy and gives people access to the power they need to do what they do best: work and create with dedication and love.
