What is management today?

The hosts and creators of the forum, Sergey and Victoria Bekhterev will tell you.

Management today (or modern management) is:
  • engaged «grown-up» employees;
  • openness and management without pressure;
  • conscious consumption and resource management;
  • integrity without a gap between the personal and professional;
  • rapid growth in falling markets!

10 years ago, it was impossible to even imagine companies like Patagonia, Zappos, Google, FAVI, Facebook, VkusVill, Tochka Bank, Cantata, Kofemania, Oil Energy, Boucher, GOOD WOOD, 4fresh and many others in Russia.

We want you to personally meet their leaders, to try Your Game—and create a YOURcracy!
We believe in self-management because we see how effectively it works in all areas of business around the world. We know that it can be very different. But we see the main principles that unite all these companies and we want to show you their experience.

Do you want your company to develop and grow without your constant involvement in operational and strategic tasks?

At the Forum you will see those who have already gained this.
Tired of manual control,lack of initiative from the employees, constant need to control everything? Do you want the goals to be achieved, people's eyes to shine brightly and responsibility taken by everyone? Are you looking for the tools to help you achieve all of these? You will find them on the #BWM2021 Forum
Are you dreaming of getting rid of staff turnover? Find "your" people and focus on strengthening the team? Create a culture in which you do not need to think about the external motivation of people, because will they have enough internal resource for achievement and growth? The heroes of the Forum will tell you how they did it all.
Do you feel that your company's culture has outgrown the regular management that is practiced by inertia? Want more freedom, transparency and responsibility?
