Presented a talk at the Scrum Gathering Portugal 2011 called “The Boss Who Breaks All the Rules”
"For 25 years, Ricardo Semler has been putting into practice what increasing numbers of modern management gurus are now preaching. He heads a democratic company, Semco, where employees set their hours, determine their salaries and choose their bosses. In this session we will talk about the main management changes that Semco introduced, which are very aligned with the agile mindset. We’ll also hear from managers of five companies on their real and concrete experience in putting some of these concepts in practice.
Invited speakers for this session: Rui Pedro Alves (Partner at Rupeal), Jurgen Appelo (Book author “Management 3.0”), João Pedro Martins (CTO at Create.IT), Alexandre Magno (Principal at AdaptWorks) and Miguel Muñoz Duarte (Partner at Imatch)
