The Post-Hierarchical Organization

The Post-Hierarchical Organization | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

The way we manage our organizations is largely ineffective for the complex challenges we face, whether driven by the environment, demographics, economics, or politics. Organizational hierarchies work well when information flows mostly in one direction: down. However complex problems cannot be solved alone.

Becky Willmoth's curator insight, October 24, 5:01 AM

Within this article Harold Jarche suggests that although hierarchies are practical to get work done, they should not be the overarching structure of organizations. He brings to the fore two key elements in creating post hierarchical organisations, cultivating distributed networks and developing trust within those networks. Complexity cannot be navigated by following a manual, but requires the sharing of tacit knowledge. Jarche highlights how tacit knowledge flows best in trusted networks as without trust, few people are willing to share their knowledge. Individuals who favour authenticity and seek collaborate across a broad range of networks are well positioned to lead the organisations of the future.

The Un-Tapped Value of Employee Social Capital - Schaefer Marketing Solutions: We Help Businesses {grow}

The Un-Tapped Value of Employee Social Capital - Schaefer Marketing Solutions: We Help Businesses {grow} | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
When you have a problem to solve or you begin a new project, what’s your first step? Consult the corporate knowledge base? Not so much. Ask a colleague who you know has knowledge and experience? Much more likely! That benefit of getting the answer from someone in your network is called social capital.

Social capital is not owned by any one individual, it cannot be taken away; it is inherent in the network connections among individuals. The bigger your network, the better your access to social capital. In a large company, the only feasible way to be part of a global network is via social communication technologies.

A Guide To Co-Leadership: Why It’s Hard, Why It’s Good, And How To Make It Work | TechCrunch

A Guide To Co-Leadership: Why It’s Hard, Why It’s Good, And How To Make It Work | TechCrunch | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
This post is a brief guide to co-leading. I’ll outline why having co-leaders is hard, why it’s a source of enhanced productivity, creativity, and joy when it works, and some tactics for success. 

I’m going to use the term co-leading throughout. I’m focused primarily on co-CEO relationships, but I think what I write applies equally to co-founders and other collaborative executive structures.

I’m writing primarily from my experience co-founding and subsequently co-CEO’ing HowAboutWe with Brian Schechter, my best friend since childhood. Over about five years, we grew the company to 100 people, and then — this past summer — sold it to IAC. We’re still best friends.

donhornsby's curator insight, October 20, 7:52 AM

(From the article): Know your own weaknesses. If you are incapable of seeing your weaknesses — and particularly the things you do that are hard for your co-leaders, even if they aren’t categorically counterproductive — then you will end up in a prideful, defensive, unhelpful stance. If you see your weaknesses then you will be able to build a balanced view of the relationship dynamics that will support rapid de-escalation and effective collaboration. Your vulnerability will be fuel. Any time you spend being defensive is time wasted.

Correspondence and conversation

Correspondence and conversation | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

This has been a revelatory and repetitive experience for me over the past twelve months. Last October I made a conscious decision to blog publicly and be more active on social platforms like Twitter. Some of the connections made online since then, and amplified through face-to-face time spent over coffee or food, have resulted in strong friendships that are both cherished and highly valued. In people like Anne Marie McEwan and Jon Husband, for example, I have found individuals who influence and challenge my thinking, and with whom I interact several times a week. With Kenneth Mikkelsen, I have formed a friendship and a writing partnership, shaped by a relationship with someone with whom I have a number of overlapping and interacting interests. The list goes on and on. People like Julian Stodd, Doug Shaw, John Wenger, Anne McCrossan and Luis Suarez have given me the courage to take the next step and try the freelance life again. To put my convictions into practice.

Innovation Excellence | Midnight Lunch – Dishing on Collaboration

Innovation Excellence | Midnight Lunch – Dishing on Collaboration | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Because we frequently confuse ‘team effort’ with real collaboration, our innovation failures often lie in the human side of systems charged with bringing new products and services to life.  In fact, during his first stint as CEO of Procter & Gamble, A. G. Lafley stated that most innovation failures are actually social. They lie in breakdowns of communication. They sit wedged in silos, separating the expertise of one functional area from another. These social failures impact not only the roots of innovation within an organization, but its execution as well.
David Hain's insight:

For effective innovation, focus on team learning and collective intelligence rather than process.

Leadership in Social Enterprise

Leaders of social enterprises face manifold challenges: many leaders do not have a formal business education and were driven by the passion to solve a social cause. Their intrinsic motivation comes first and economic reasons rank low. But business procedures need to be implemented, teams built and money earned to run a social enterprise successfully. To support them, this manual sets out to answer the following question: What are the key challenges for social entrepreneurs when it comes to leadership?

Leadership lessons from Sibos: discernment, connectivity, proximity

Leadership lessons from Sibos: discernment, connectivity, proximity | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Sustainable innovation and entrepreneurial growth come from ecosystems, not mere assets. Ecosystems are environments designed from the bottom-up to foster serendipitous interactions. The ecosystems are nurtured by several key cultural traits: connectivity, diversity of ideas and talents, deep levels of trust, motivations that rise above short-term zero-sum calculation and cultural norms that encourage dreaming, risk-taking, and paying it forward.

This is a way of modeling and making sense of our world, even if it's not a perfectly accurate way of constructing our social and environmental worlds.  Now, to put these techniques into practice and study, to see if we can govern and manage our world more effectively with this metaphor.

Data shows collaboration in the new economy is accelerating. 
People are crowdfunding, making, sharing, collaborating, all kinds of their things in life. Some are getting food on-demand, rather than going to traditional grocery stores or restaurants. The world is speeding up, and people are transacting between each other, or rapid-delivery services. We expect this to continue to accelerate as the funding from VCs dwarfs many markets, adoption rates are doubling, and the media has endless coverage over this collaborative movement.

The Evolution Of The Employee

The Evolution Of The Employee | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

This concept and the visual was taken from my new book which came out today called, The Future of Work: Attract New Talent, Build Better Leaders, and Create a Competitive Organization.

 

One of the things I have been writing about and have tried to make clear over the past few months is that work as we know it is dead and that the only way forward is to challenge convention around how we work, how we lead, and how we build our companies. Employees which were once thought of expendable cogs are the most valuable asset that any organization has. However, the employee from a decade ago isn’t the same as the employee who we are starting to see today. To help show that I wanted to share an image from my upcoming book which depicts how employees are evolving. It’s an easy way to see the past vs the future.

Tom Hood's curator insight, September 6, 8:27 AM

Nice graphic that captures the essence of how work and the employee is changing / needing to change. It is very close to an exercise we did with our team as we prepared for our move and our "workplace" consultants (Avance') had our entire team map how work was, how it is now, and where they see it going... Here are some of the key areas:

 

From individual work to group work

From hierarchy to flat structure

From Independent group to interdependent group

From internally focused to external (customer/member and brand)

From planned connections to spontaneous connections

From single work point to multiple workpoints

From structured to fluid

 

This also reinforces our approach to what we are calling the "shift change" and how the interplay of technology, workplace, leadership, learning, and culture are all in need of intentional thoughtful planning to get the most out of the new world we are facing...
