How IMO is organized
Adriaan Bekman founded IMO in 2005. His idea was to build an organization that should be fully horizontal with only a few vertical elements. We have no office building, not a functional organization, no employee conditions, no fixed strategy, rules and regulations. We have clear processes of working and developing together. Each member is an IMO entrepreneur, independent and responsible for his/her business. We concentrate on the client work and on the methodology development. There is an IMO Foundation in the Netherlands that protects the name and the logo, the IMO website and the methodology.
IMO colleagues work together in country groups. They meet with all colleagues once a year for 5 days in an IMO country. They organize meetings with clients and their network.
All leaders of the country groups are member of the IMO International board and Jutta Hodapp is leading this team. This team takes care for the consistency of the international IMO community. Members of the board:
IMO is a legal Foundation based in the Netherlands
3961 EV Wijk bij Duurstede
The IMO Foundation has a three person Board:
the IMO International leader, a person responsibe for finances and
network and another country team leader.
The IMO name and IMO Logo belong to the IMO Foundation.
The IMO websites (domainnames and hosting) belong to the IMO Foundation.
The IMO foundation organizes a yearly IMO Client Network Conference.
