Description

We already know, that managers are evil, right?  We know that teams should self-organize, but still people need a vision to follow, they need leaders to lean on when times are difficult.

Let's look at outlaw motorcycle clubs like the Hell's Angels or the Sons of Anarchy (from the TV-show) and learn from their anarchistic practices, what we can apply to be leaders instead of managers. How to build trust and empower people, so they can respond to ever an changing environment and keep on track, without requiring intervention from "the management". 

Motorcycle clubs manage to bring together various characters, which are rebels at heart, just like many ambitious developers. Through common values, rules and a democratic and yet decentralized approach, they manage to survive against many odds, and most importingly not to loose their motivation.
