Laura Goodrich's curator insight, February 10, 10:23 AM

"Manufacturing isn't the "dirty" job of old, but rather quite the opposite as there is a real opportunity to educate Millennials on the increasingly innovative environment of manufacturing and the role they can play in driving the industry forward. In fact, we are currently undergoing a "manufacturing renaissance" as more companies look to produce on American soil again. With that, an urgent and growing need now exists. While the number of job opportunities continues to increase, we are battling archaic ideas alongside a current skilled labor force that is drastically aging out. According to 2013 reports, for every four trade positions professionals retire from, the industry is producing only one replacement." Dan Campbell is founder/CEO of Hire Dynamics and 2014 chairman of the American Staffing Association.

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 | Learning & Learning Technologies - Interest Piques | 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.

_______________________________
       
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.

Holacracies, wirearchies and feedback rich cultures are one of the key ways organizations can adapt to disruptive change, or so it is beginning to look.   It will take solid leadership to change the nature of control and power in new millenium organizations, with unconventional larger organizations. like Zappos, leading the way.  ~  D
