Abstract Description of six institutions that have introduced changes in the way work is organized. The changes involve breaking down limits between different groups of workers, giving responsibility to workers, and introducing self-leading groups. The workplaces involved: an adult education centre; a supermarket; a kindergarten; an institution for handicapped children; a housing service; a woodworking factory. Generally, all the workplaces involved characterize the changes as successful.
