Dans un environnement complexe, comment travailler efficacement.

Claude Emond's curator insight, January 12, 2014 11:32 AM

Principes agiles à l'oeuvre. Vraiment exhaustif et très très bien fait. L'organisation du travail  telle qu'elle doit être pour fonctionner au 21e siècle: basée sur l'intelligence collective, agile (auto-organisation) et certainement plus durable que l'impossible commandement et contrôle.

une vision intéressante de la complexité et des évolutions managériales qu'elle impose.

Identification boosts conflicts

Identification boosts conflicts | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Our claim is that identification boosts conflicts, and we suggest to address identities dynamics from a complex perspective, focusing on the processes instead of the entities, allowing ‘relational identities’ to emerge from interactions of the agents involved in the organization.

 

 

Philippe Vallat's insight:

Relationships are the heart. See also the Agile Manifesto: "Individuals and interactions over processes and tools".

How Power Corrupts the Mind

How Power Corrupts the Mind | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

While at Columbia University, Andy J. Yap set up a simple experiment. After manipulating his subjects into powerful or weak states (in the lab, psychologists are the most powerful ones of all), Yap asked them to guess the height and weight of others both in person and from photographs.

"When people feel powerful or feel powerless, it influences their perception of others," said Yap, who is now a postdoctoral researcher at MIT.  According to their understanding, we judge the power of others relative to our own: When we feel powerful, others appear less so --and powerlessness and smallness often go together in our minds.

Stigmergy

Stigmergy | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
Kind people have stigmergically translated this article into German and French. This article is part of a series: ‘Governance and other systems of mass collaboration’. Stigmergy is a me...
Philippe Vallat's insight:

Stigmergy is a mechanism of indirect coordination between agents or actions. The principle is that the trace left in the environment by an action stimulates the performance of a next action, by the same or a different agent. In that way, subsequent actions tend to reinforce and build on each other, leading to the spontaneous emergence of coherent, apparently systematic activity. Stigmergy is a form of self-organization. It produces complex, seemingly intelligent structures, without need for any planning, control, or even direct communication between the agents.

Great post, have you tried combining this with what Holacracy has to offer as a governance tool with distributed power? Seems there are synergies.
Pierre Johnson's comment, January 21, 2013 5:15 AM
I have thought of it, and will investigate it. FYI, I have found that Stigmergy my be a synonym of Distributed Intelligence. Who would agree on this?

If someone promises something without specifying the consequences if they don’t deliver, consider asking them, “or else what?” until they come up with a specific natural consequence that you agree with. Ask for it in writing. If the writing is not readable, say no deal until that contract is readable. “Power is never granted, only taken”, and this is 1 way to do it peacefully...
