Talk, by Tiago Andrade e Silva and Rui Pedro Alves
Tuesday, June 21, 11:00 – 12:30 @ B 003

For 25 years, Ricardo Semler has been putting into practice what increasing numbers of modern management gurus are now preaching. He heads a democratic company, Semco, where employees set their hours, determine their salaries and choose their bosses. In this session we will talk about the main management changes that Semco introduced, which are very aligned with the agile mindset. We’ll also hear from managers of companies on their real and concrete experience in putting some of these concepts in practice.
