Good question. I'd be interested to hear of any examples where companies survived without CEOs, if you know of any.
Here's some food for thought: James Parker of Southwest Airlines said that leaders define the mission and the vision and then get out of the way of their people. If the CEO (the leader) has to get out of the way, why do we need him in the first place? Can we setup a structure in which team members explain the vision and the mission to new employees? You would probably need to setup some other checks and balances in place, but I can see how the firm can function without the CEO...
The short answer is that you need a leader to align the people and non-human resources to achieve the strategic goals of the organization. You also need managers to organize the operational processes so that the workers can carry out the tasks.
Great question! And it's one a CEO here on the site is asking himself: check out MIX Maverick Vineet Nayar (CEO of HCL Technologies) new post on the questions he asks himself on a regular basis. One of them: What would happen if there was no CEO at my company? (Or any company in the world?) His post is here: http://www.managementexchange.com/blog/twenty-questions-i-ask-myself-eve...
What if indeed! It would be great to hear more from you on what you're actually doing to make this work—how you instituted the change, what roadblocks you ran into, what you're doing to promote and support the human side of your organization, and what a "web-based" enterprise really means. Thanks!
