You’re looking for “Maverick-like” companies? Companies like Semco? Have you heard about what Best Buy is doing with ROWE (Results-Only Work Environment)? Definitely “Maverick-like” if you ask me. People at their corporate headquarters can do whatever they want, whenever they want, as long as their work gets done – complete trust. It was just written about at Polly LaBarre’s Mavericks at Work blog and then was mentioned by Seth Godin The creators of ROWE, Cali Ressler and Jody Thompson, have a blog, too – - excellent.
