How do you talk about who’s who in your organisation, and what does it say about your values?
One Acre Fund is an organisation that spends about US$100 million per year on their program, with 8,300 staff serving 760,000 families (or more than 4 million people) in more than six countries.
They are doing excellent work, and my impression is that they have excellent leadership, and top-level leaders worth making a noise about.
But look at their leadership page. There’s no org chart with the big fish at the top, there are no job titles until you hover-over – just a set of faces that represent the organisation ordered alphabetically by first name.
Who’s who isn’t immediately clear – but we learn a lot about ‘who’ One Acre Fund is, and what’s important to them.
