Anarchy in the Workplace
By Jonathan Gifford
There seems, thank goodness, to be a genuine and growing interest in the idea that our workplaces should be more ‘democratic’.
I don’t know about you, however, but I still see precious little sign of any real change towards the democratisation of the places where we spend the majority of our waking hours.
And, just to be contrary, I am going to argue that ‘democracy’ is actually not what organisations need. I think that what organisations need is a healthy dose of anarchy.
