Over two years ago, I wrote about some of the research that spurred me on to make FBS an employee-owned company. That research is summarized really well by this RSA video created for a Dan Pink speech:
Autonomy, mastery and purpose. These are the keys to the maker movement. We all want to be owners, I have no doubt about that.
The big question I have right now is whether or not it is possible to organize owners. Or is organized owners an oxymoron? Can you have autonomy in an organization?
