Examples of Management 2.0 Organizations

The Management 2.0 Hackathon continues. The current "sprint" goal is to identify 100 companies that already use "principles of the Web to build organizations that are fit for the future." What are M2.0 principles? Based on our prior activities, we've identified 12 behaviors and philosophies that describe Management 2.0 organizations. Now we're looking for exemplar companies that live by these principles.

While the whole list sings to me -- Openness, Community, Meritocracy, Activism, Collaboration, Meaning, Autonomy, Serindipity, Decentralization, Trust, & Speed -- Activism​ will be getting special attention from me this year (see my 2012 New Year post). ...but that's for another day.

Today I'm reaching out to you for additional companies that demonstrate the use of these principles today. My starting thoughts for the hackathon include:

  • Intuit: Openness, Community, Autonomy, Serendipity, Decentralization, & Experimentation (drawing from this post).
  • Nucor: Openness, Meritocracy, Activism, Collaboration, Autonomy, Decentralization, Trust, and Speed (drawing from this post). 

What other companies are special exemplars of at least one of these 12 principles? 

From the MIX site you can see some starter examplars (click on each principle). Red Hat is perfect for openness by default. Zappos didn't make this initial list for meaning, but I bet it does by the end. Google is a perfect fit for experimentation. What other organizations can we all learn from in terms of how they've implemented these principles? Big or small, well known -- or ideally, not so well known -- let's practice some collaboration in building out this list.

This phase of the hackathon ends Monday, January 23, 2012. I'll be watching the comments here to see if you have add-ons for us -- or I'll be looking for new participants to the hackathon as you add your submissions directly
