The future of organizational structures
Just a thought…. Two of the characteristics of learning space (value creation primarily through quality) are flat organization and the system of continuous improvements… in thinking space (value creation primarily through innovation) these two elements evolve into net organizations and innovative process. In self-conscious space (value creation primarily through intuition and life-energy) spider net and natural growth are the adequate elements. And the thought I am developing is that the major difference between flat and net organizations and spider nets is in the growth approach. The first two still need a hierarchy in order to grow. In spider nets the growth is inspired by the natural growth of the holistic cells (individuals or groups) and is a subject of a natural behavior – growth from a node out, e.g., a holistic node knows when is time to split, join… it initiates not only follows…. It is self motivated… it uses its intuition in order to connect and disconnect…. Let’s see where will this lead me… any thoughts?
