With the Semco Style customization projects we search for the style that suits your organization. We link current issues of the organization to future challenges and solutions. We do this by getting the maximum out of employees. This brings internal organizational strength and the organization course as close together as possible. Involving participants from different layers in the organization and providing them with new skills creates a different mindset that allows one to focus on achieving results.
Our modular training program consists of 3 levels, that you can register separately for, or sign up for all at once.
SemcoStyle Institute India LLP
The Semco Style Institute aims to fuel the ongoing evolution of the Semco Style of organizing by creating a community of Certified Consultants and Semco Style Change Makers who can learn from each other.
Semco Style first came into being in 1980, when a 21-year old Ricardo Semler took over the Semco Group, a mixer and agitator manufacturer, from his father. On his first day, he fired 60 percent of all top managers. He continued to democratize the company, turning the old corporate hierarchy on its head by delegating as much decision power to the workforce as possible. In 20 years’ time, he grew the company from 90 to 3000 workers and from $4 million dollars to $212 million dollars in annual revenue - with an employee turnover of only 2%.
Today, Semco Group has evolved into Semco Partners. Semco Partners works with foreign companies to help them expand into the Brazilian market. They do this by employing a sophisticated joint venture model that combines Semco Style management practices with the partners’ expertise and product lines.
Implementation of Semco Style in the new companies thus created has yielded an IRR of 46,5%. This is a testament to the fact that, companies that adopt Semco Style are more effective, profitable and flexible, and have higher customer satisfaction and happier co-workers.
What Semco Style isn’t is a recipe you should simply follow, it is not dogmatic or unchangeable. Semco Style is the result of a lot of trial and error, of taking a few steps forward and a couple back, and it strives to remain a work in progress indefinitely.
The Semco Style Institute aims to fuel the ongoing evolvement of the Semco Style of organizing by creating a community of Certified Consultants and Semco Style Change Makers who can learn from each other.
Together, we will create organizations that are able to transform themselves continuously and successfully. Organizations that make people look forward to coming to work every day.
