Over the years, Ricardo Semler has fine-tuned his management approach and strengthened it with a theoretical foundation to create The Semco Style methodology. Semco Style builds on five pivotal principles that form the foundation for 15 key organisational pillars and over 100 powerful work practices, tried and tested over time.
These principles go well beyond the notion of self-governance and are interdependent: eliminate one, and the others have much less impact and become far less meaningful.
The successful implementation of the Semco Style yields many results:
As the Semco Partners grew, they started incorporating and collaborating with other international companies that also adopted the Semco Style. These new companies yielded an IRR of 46,5%. This is testament to the fact that even today, companies that adopt Semco Style are more effective, profitable and flexible, and have higher customer satisfaction and happier employees.
The Semco Style Institute aims to fuel the ongoing evolution of the Semco Style by creating a community of Certified Consultants and Semco Style Change Makers who can learn from each other. Authentic Consulting is a registered master coach of the Semco Style.
The SEMCO Style leadership competencies will strengthen your operations’ management principles and can grow your organisation’s ability to establish a continuous improvement capability in its people and processes.
