A 21st century approach to organization design that allows companies to execute and adapt at scale. This approach harnesses technology, and new abilities to communicate and coordinate across massive networks of people and teams. It fosters more creative, collaborative, and innovative cultures. And it enables organizations to match their internal pace of change to the external pace of change in the world around them.
What if, instead of mapping out and changing complex, huge, can’t-hold-this-matrix-in-my-head organizational structures, we design organizations happens every day and is focused around the work? That we design organizations around the informal, ever-changing networks that already exist?
And what if, because the people who do the work know the work best, they are given tools and know-how to do org design work continuously? What if everyone in your company was an org designer?
We talk about these provocations, how continuous participatory reorganization and making incremental changes - instead of giant overhauls - empowers the individual and makes change (not easier per se), but less painful.
