The way we work is outdated. It was created for a stable, slow and predictable world that no longer exists. The world has changed dramatically in the past hundred years, but the way we organise work has remained much the same.
Organisations still rely on hierarchies, bureaucracy, top-down command, tight rules and control. That's not just painfully ineffective—it's also outrageously frustrating. Luckily, there is a better way.

Corporate Rebels is a company, a movement, a blog, a book, and much more. What’s more important is why we do what we do. That’s to make work more fun.
For more than five years we’ve been visiting and researching more than one hundred of the world’s most progressive organisations to understand how to create better workplaces. We share what we learn on our blog.
In essence, the platform has two main functions.
Course content: It’s where you find an overview of the courses you’ve purchased. Plus, the place where you learn through written content, videos, animations, assignments, etc.
Community: It’s where you connect with fellow students. Every individual who purchases a course gets access to the global community.
