luiy's curator insight, February 8, 7:08 PM

Baxter is instantly recognizable as a humanoid robot. It has two burly, jointed arms with claw-like grips for hands; a torso; and a head with an LCD face that swivels to ‘look at’ the nearest person. It doesn’t have legs, though; Rethink sidestepped the enormous challenges of automatic locomotion by putting Baxter on wheels and having it rely on people to get from place to place. The company’s analyses suggest that it can still do lots of useful work without the ability to move under his own power.

Homo Agilis (Collective Intelligence, Agility and Sustainability : The Future is already here)
For and about all those people working to build together a sustainable world through collective intelligence and agility. Knowledge to share and collective behaviours to adopt to build and foster a sustainable future for all of us.
«The future is already here – it's just not evenly distributed»

The Illusive Definition of Agile by Jim Highsmith | Homo Agilis (Collective Intelligence, Agility and Sustainability : The Future is already here) | Scoop.it
What is Agile? Is it a set of practices, a set of values, or a set of mind—or some combination of the three? Is it “Doing Agile” or “Being Agile?” Is agile defined by a checklist of offered practices—the Nokia test for Scrum, or checking 9 of 12 practice boxes for XP? Is agile a ... Read more

Comparez l’inversion de polarité et l'émergence sociale..


Observez bien votre comportement et vous verrez qu'il n'est pas facile de changer de modèle et pourtant nous allons y adhérer. Alors prenons notre courage à deux mains et osons faire le saut. Plus nous tarderons plus la chaos s'installera et plus les perturbations seront grandes.


Montrons nous les français la voie comme nous l'avons fait avec la charte des droits de l'homme à la révolution !


Mobilisez l'intelligence collective est un moyen pour changer de modèle et y arriver collectivement dans nos organisations.


De nombreuses méthodes d'IC existent mais le travail n'est pas du domaine du mental et du rationnel. D'abord c'est bien plus profond que nous pouvons le penser.


C'est pour cela qu'il n'est pas facile d'y adhérer, c'est un vrai changement de paradigme.

« Toute personne se comporte de la façon la plus satisfaisante pour lui, compte-tenu de sa représentation du monde ». (Erol Franko, Pscychiatre). Mettre à jour notre logiciel interne nécessite alors de changer notre vision du monde. La mobilisation de l'intelligence collective permet de s'appuyer sur tous les ressentis collectifs (peurs, tentations, attraits..) pour  co-construire une nouvelle vision.

Le partage d'informations et de travaux professionnels est essentiel à la communication et à la productivité de l'entreprise.


Grâce à certains outils sur internet, les collaborateurs peuvent créer, partager et modifier des fichiers de travail en temps réel. Ces applications web sont simples d'utilisation et permettent notamment d'améliorer la communication interne dans l'entreprise.


Les auteurs de ce livre blanc partent du constat que beaucoup d’entreprises ont pris conscience du rôle important que peuvent jouer les outils collaboratifs dans l'orientation stratégique de l'entreprise.

Wirearchies = Adaptive, Two Way Flow of Power, Knowledge, with a Focus on Results

Wirearchies = Adaptive, Two Way Flow of Power, Knowledge, with a Focus on Results | Homo Agilis (Collective Intelligence, Agility and Sustainability : The Future is already here) | Scoop.it

Harold Jarche features Chee Chin Liew’s presentation on moving from hierarchies to teams at BASF.  It shows how IT Services used their technology platforms to enhance networking, knowledge-sharing, and collaboration.  


It features an approach to “building flows of information into pertinent, useful and just-in-time knowledge” so that...  knowledge can flow in order to foster trust and credibility.

In complex environments, weak hierarchies and strong networks are the best organizing principle.   ...It means giving up control. 

   

_______________________________
       
Creating this two-way flow of dialogue, practice, expertise, and interest, can be the foundation of a 
wirearchy.

In complex environments, weak hierarchies and strong networks are the best organizing principle.


....many companies today have strong networks...coupled with strong central control. Becoming a wirearchy requires new organizational structures that incorporate communities, networks, and cooperative behaviours. It means giving up control. The job of those in leaderships roles is to help the network make better decisions.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, August 17, 2:23 PM

I just featured the called out quote above about complexity (over complicated, bureaucratic), and less hierarchy, more communication via networks in my most recent post about letting go of industrial age thinking via the command and control nature of performance appraisals.  

Wirearchy and holacracy (think Zappos) are alternatives that embrace networked learning.  One is arguably a set of principles, the latter is an organization design approach that deemphasizes management.

“Relationship is key,” he emphasizes. “When we work with relationship, we work with brain structure. Relationship stimulates us and is essential in our development. People rarely mention relationship in brain studies, but it provides vital input to the brain.


==========================

Relationship stimulates us and is

essential in our development.

People rarely mention relationship

in brain studies, but it provides

vital input to the brain.

===============


Every form of psychotherapy that works, works because it creates healthier brain function and structure.… In approaching our lives, we can ask where do we experience the chaos or rigidity that reveal where integration is impaired.


We can then use the focus of our attention to integrate both our brain and our relationships. Ultimately we can learn to be open in an authentic way to others, and to ourselves.


The outcome of such an integrative presence is not only a sense of deep well-being and compassion for ourselves and others, but also an opening of the doors of awareness to a sense of the interdependence of everything. ‘We’ are indeed a part of an interconnected whole.””

“We is what me is!”

Eli Levine's curator insight, February 12, 11:34 PM

The network of "I" is connected to the network that is "us" in an upward gradient.

 

There can be no full "I" without "we", because all humans have to be socialized, like any other social animal, in order to develop fully as individual human beings.

 

We are all connected to one another and the environment to form one web on this planet.  It affects us and we affect it, sometimes for good, sometimes for bad, depending upon what we do to it consciously and subconsciously.

 

Why listen to the individualists who have absolutely no sense or desire to connect with the other that is around them and that has helped form them as individuals, psychologically, physically and socially?

 

They are not in touch with the actual world, and are probably just of a pathological mindset that, I think, needs to be treated as a disease by our society.

 

We are all one.

 

What you do effects all those who are around you and are connected to you.

 

And, most importantly, what you do to them/it is the same thing that you do to yourself, as an individual.

 

Think about it.

 

Libertarians.

 

Conservatives.

 

Think about it.

Zappos says Goodbye to Bosses & Bureaucracy - Hello to Holacracy

Zappos says Goodbye to Bosses & Bureaucracy - Hello to Holacracy | Homo Agilis (Collective Intelligence, Agility and Sustainability : The Future is already here) | Scoop.it

The famed, unique Las Vegas-based shoe retailer...will eliminate traditional managers, do away with the typical corporate hierarchy and get rid of job titles, at least internally.

__________________
 
....bureaucracy ...was getting in the way of adaptability.”

    

__________________


The unusual approach is called a “holacracy,” replacing the traditional corporate chain of command with a series of overlapping, self-governing “circles.” In theory, this gives employees more of a voice in the way the company is run.


According to Zappos executives, the move is an effort to keep the 1,500-person company from becoming too rigid, too unwieldy and too bureaucratic as it grows.


“As we scaled, we noticed that the bureaucracy we were all used to was getting in the way of adaptability,” says Zappos’s John Bunch, who is helping lead the transition to the new structure.


Holacracy ...has a couple of high-profile devotees — Twitter cofounder Evan Williams uses it at his new company, Medium, and time management guru David Allen uses it run his firm — but Zappos is by far the largest company to adopt the idea.]

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, January 6, 8:22 PM

I'm intrigued to see this second emergence of holacracy.  Do we have an agile organizational structure developing here?

I'm sensing the far edge of a trend here, especially after facilitating Open Space events (self-led interest topics on a theme) in the last couple of years,.  I've mostly used them in a professional learning context, although three client organizations have used this organic, adaptible format for planning & strategy.  


In my view. it seems that these leaders are shifting perspective, letting go of some of the trappings of the 90's, to embrance more adaptive structures that can help fuel innovation.  ~  Deb

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, January 6, 8:44 PM

Adaptive communication.  It's time for something far beyond Fredrick Taylor's scientific management 1920's style bureacraciy.  I'm sensing this is the calm before the storm of change to move beyond traditional management structures.  There will be more holacracies and their kin to come.  ~  D
