A Different Way To Run A Company

October 7th, 2017 by Jim Cotterman

Managing Partners, I would like 22 minutes of your time to listen to a thought provoking TED talk entitled “How to run a company with (almost) no rules”.  It you are unfamiliar with TED talks, they are short - approximately 20 minute - presentations that are well done and engaging.  This talk is 18 minutes with a 4 minute Q&A at the end. I urge you to listen to CEO, Ricardo Semler, not to emulate what he has done to transform a small company into a large successful conglomerate.  Rather, this talk expands our frame of reference and entertains new ideas that could possibly lead to better paths forward. His “three whys” are particularly interesting.
