A book born after the Conversations held in Boston in October 2011...

Those who join the Conversations on Follett held in Boston in October 2011 certainly remember two really exciting and rich days.

The Relevance of Mary Parker Follett to the Market Basket Protest

    Last summer's stunning protest by thousands of employees at the Market Basket food stores in Massachusetts , New Hampshire and other states was both a major labor action success and an exhibition of innovative worker management cooperation in the face of extraordinary opposition from the Board of Directors. The saga was played out largely in the media and in public demonstrations, including a protest gathering of 6,000 employees one day near company headquarters. It was effective group…See More
