Companies organized using efficiency models struggle with disruptions in their business making it hard (nearly impossible) for them to react to new technologies, trends, needs, and competition. These companies cannot change fast enough to take advantage of technological advancements, changes in customer behavior and buying patterns as well as decision making. These large companies control and dominate the industry so they can keep the status quo going. Additionally, when startups enter the market with better products/services, big companies react to this problem the same way they always have; they acquire them and shelf the innovation to remove the threat so they can continue business as usual.
Launching a company to fit in the efficiency mold to address current industry-wide problems would be destined for failure. Along comes ProPools...
Central to our organizational philosophy is the commitment and belief of our purpose. Each person who makes the decision to join ProPools must agree and believe in our purpose. The power of Self-Management is the relationship between team members. We believe accountability between team members is more powerful than an employment agreement or contract with a company.

For Self-Management to be successful, it's essential that teams and team members have open and transparent communication. Teams will flourish when innovation is present, and knowledge and experiences are shared!
Teams and team members are empowered and encouraged to make decisions without a formal hierarchy structure. If you and your team think you have a great idea, try it, go for it! We do not want to stand in the way of innovation of delivering a better product or service because something is written in stone. Each team member is trusted by ProPools to use their best judgement to decide what is the best course of action which will advance our purpose. Any team member, not just organizational leaders, can propose changes to how we operate.
Our culture thrives because we all benefit from each other’s personal success as well as the Company’s success.
