Learning workplaces are highly motivational. In order to learn you need fast feedback loops. Daniel Debow, co-founder + co-CEO of Rypple, attended The WorldBlu Conference + Awards 2010 in Las Vegas this past week. The conference brings together this year’s WorldBlu List of Most Democratic Workplaces awardees to share their powerful ideas, best practices, tips and strategies with business leaders from around the world. Since 2007, WorldBlu has been identifying the leading “blu” companies that operate using the principles of openness and transparency, collaboration, and a power-to-the-people ethic to build highly innovative, democratic, and profitable organizations worldwide.
Debow focuses on 4 key ideas throughout the presentation:
1. Democratic workplaces must be learning workplaces
2. Learning organizations are inherently lean
3. Traditional performance reviews don’t help us motivate or learn
4. A better way to learn @work
And introducing: An open collaboration among democratic companies to lay down few principles of The Agile People revolution.
