- Jun 1, 2012I think the means she’s looking for other organisations that use a similar orgizational model, so flat, everybody can decide where and what to do etc.From our training material I remember Semco as an example company that used this model in hopes to avoid bankruptcy. They managed to do so. There’s even books about it.I expect there to be others as well.JesseSent from my Windows 8 PCJean:Are you looking for the employee handbook ?

I have been doing research on team-based organizations trying to turn up enduring examples among mid- to large sized organizations. There’s plenty of theoretical “how-to” out there.
I expect some of you may be aware of the Valve employee handbook being posted on the web. Has anyone actually talked to Valve? I’ve seen postings on the web that indicate the handbook is “real,” but when I was finally able to find a phone number for the organization, I was only able to get to voice mail at the terminus of all the working options in their automated attendant (some options were circular). I’m beginning to think this org is visionary, but quite small. Is anyone aware of a case study on Valve?
