"A company that seeks to manufacture cheaper, better, more profitable laptop computers would run operations like an agricultural plantation. It would seek to control and tune all of the specific processes for producing that computer to the finest degree possible. However, a community that seeks to generate high levels of innovation throughout the whole system would do the opposite. It would run operations like a rainforest, not controlling the specific processes but instead helping to set the right environmental variables that foster the unpredictable creation of new weeds" You will need to create relations with heteregenous people:"Thus, the instincts that once helped our ancestors survive—favoring distrust over trust when it comes to strangers—are hurting our ability to maximize innovation today"

Abolish the organization chart and replace it with a network diagram (some new tech companies have done this).Move away from counting hours, to a results only work environment.Encourage outside work that doesn’t directly interfere with paid work, as it will strengthen the network.Provide options for workers to come and go and give them ways to stay connected when they’re not employed (like Ericsson’s Stay Connected Facebook group). Build an ecosystem, not a monolith.Organizations should promote connected leadership.
