“Most families run their households like a self-organized team,” said Pieter de Lange who works for the Personal Banking Department of ABN AMRO. His department used to have ~3500 employees before ABN AMRO began collaborating with Semco Style Institute (SSI) in 2018. Their aim was to work towards a human-centric business where trust, team maturity and integrity were core values.
For SSI, it was the biggest challenge they had taken on to date – supporting ABN AMRO, a large corporate organization, through their journey towards self-organization. Right from its start, in 2018, the project was focused on creating the foundation and boundaries required to make self-organization work as it would at home.
