The Learning Factor's curator insight, September 25, 2013 7:56 PM

Our workplaces are shifting from hierarchies to networks. Hyperlinks have subverted hierarchy. Everyone is connected. In many hierarchical organisations, workers are more connected when they go home than when they’re at work. This is a sure sign of the obsolescence of our older management control systems and why becoming a social business is so important today.

Living and working in non-hierarchical networks is our challenge this decade. The effective use of social media, to learn from and with others, is essential for individuals and organizations to be productive in networks. Social learning, simply put, is getting things done in networks.

Best Buy Says Goodbye - Another Work From Home Program Bites The Dust - Tolero Solutions

Best Buy Says Goodbye - Another Work From Home Program Bites The Dust - Tolero Solutions | Tolero Solutions: Organizational Improvement | Scoop.it

Yahoo! may be trend setters after all – Best Buy just released it was ending its work from home program called Results Only Work Environment or ROWE (Well…sorta.) 

Scott Span, MSOD's insight:

The problem is all too often organizations don’t slow down, they don’t really collect and delve into all the available data. They see one data point (often related to money) and decide that one sweeping change will fix the issue.  Making rapid policy changes without taking a holistic organizational view is like putting a band-aid on a bullet hole.
