Welcome to Who Else Writes Like...? Interview: Ricardo Semler | Business | The Observer The almost automatic response to Ricardo Semler's wonderfully subversive new book, The Seven Day Weekend (Century, £16.99), is: 'Well, that's all very well in Sao Paulo, but we couldn't do it here.' Semler is, or was - more of this later - president of Semco, Brazil's most famous company, which has made its name by standing the conventional corporate rulebook on its head. Semco doesn't have a mission statement, its own rulebook or any written policies. It doesn't have an organisation chart, a human resources department or even, these days, a headquarters. Subordinates choose their managers, decide how much they are paid and when they work. Six months is the farthest ahead the group ever looks. Sounds like a recipe for chaos, eh? Semler argues, with figures to support him, that the model has nothing more to prove. Paradoxically, the reason for Semco's sustainability is the same one that makes conventional managers reject it: no one is in control, including Semler.
