New Ways of Working and Organizing at FreshDirect

Over the next few months we are introducing new concepts to FreshDirect related to contemporary ways of working and organizing, with the goal of challenging folks to think about work and working in a new way. This website contains information about the concept and the overall organizational transformation effort. 

Feel free to poke around and read/watch what interests you. The process of becoming a dynamic organization does not happen overnight. It only happens when individuals within the organization begin learning, thinking, and working in a new way.

The Principles of Dynamic Teaming (screencasts)

Dynamic teaming is best described as an organization actively wrestling with and trying to implement 10 general principles. We go through these principles of dynamic teaming in a series of screencasts. Watch them to get a better high level understanding of what it means to work and organize differently.

 

The FreshDirect Dynamic Teaming "Cookbook"

This is a document we're creating together to codify and institutionalize our new ways of working and organizing. Feel free to make suggestions to the Google Doc or check out the latest version of the PDF.
