Level 7: Senior managers with graduate degrees. Beginning at this level, employees often have to spend a few weeks every few years at a customer service call center or a fulfillment center to get trained in the nitty-gritty tasks of lower employees. Level 6: Senior product managers. Level 5: Program managers or product managers. Level 4: Generally describes a new hire, perhaps a recent graduate with a bachelor's degree. Levels 2 and 3: Manual laborers who work in the Amazon fulfillment centers and collect an hourly wage. Level 1: Missing level. http://mashable.com/2013/10/15/amazons-corporate-ladder/

    37. 37. The emerging corporate model is cooperative The company is a non-hierarchical network, where a constitution defines the rights and responsibilities in a relational model, and influence is social. All members are owners, in some degree, based on time in service, cash investment, and levels of responsibility. The power structure is decentralized, and a laissez-faire model prevails, since people work in voluntary associations, largely autonomously. http://research.gigaom.com/2013/12/todays-business-organization-is-an-oligarchy-and-that-needs-to-change/
    38. 38. In any Web forum there are some individuals who command more respect and attention than others - and have more influence as a consequence. Critically, though, these individuals haven’t been appointed by some superior authority. Instead, their clout reflects the freely given approbation of their peers. On the Web, authority trickles up, not down. http://blogs.wsj.com/management/2009/03/24/the-facebook-generation-vs-the-fortune-500/

    42. 42. http://www.valvesoftware.com/company/Valve_Handbook_LowRes.pdf Method to working without a boss
    43. 43. Tasks are chosen, not assigned The Web is an opt-in economy. Whether contributing to a blog, working on an open source project, or sharing advice in a forum, people choose to work on the things that interest them. Everyone is an independent contractor, and everyone scratches their own itch. http://blogs.wsj.com/management/2009/03/24/the-facebook-generation-vs-the-fortune-500/
    44. 44. What if many tasks currently done by large companies were done instead by temporary combinations of small companies and independent contractors? Taking this idea further, what if most businesses consisted of one single person? Malone, Thomas W.: The Future of Work, p. 74.
    45. 45. Possibility # 6 Markets
    46. 46. Closed system Rational actors Social actors Adapted from W. Richard Scott. Open system Markets

    54. 54. Weaknesses of markets  Incentive problems Agreements that would be good overall often don’t happen because they are not in the self interests of the parties involved.  Communication needs A lot of communication is usually needed. Malone, Thomas W.: The Future of Work, p. 106.
    55. 55. Strengths of markets  Efficiency People move to assignments where they generate value for others.  Flexibility Anyone can work on any aspect of the problem.  Motivation High autonomy to decide things individually make people work hard. Malone, Thomas W.: The Future of Work, p. 106.
    56. 56. As economists like Ronald Coase and Oliver Williamson have noted, markets work well when the needs of each party are simple, stable, and easy to specify, but they’re less effective when interactions are complex. http://hbr.org/2011/12/first-lets-fire-all-the-managers
