How is learning organized in a self-managed organization?

Joitske Hulsebosch

Laloux regularly mentions Buurtzorg in the Netherlands and AES in the UK as examples he studied. The example of 90 employees and 20 dogs at the office is quite funny. For example, a team that struggles with something can start looking for another team that performs well and ask how they do it now. An example is a working group within Buurtzorg investigating new legislation. Every month I read a management book.
