10 must-have IFTTT recipes for social media managers | Battenhall

Orderly Processions are Over

Orderly Processions are Over | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
Hierarchy likes order. Networks manage complexity.
Hierarchy walks in an orderly procession. Networks hustle.
Hierarchy wants projects to go from a through to z. Networks experiment across the alphabet.
Hierarchy wants a clean status. Networks solve for problems & mess. Hierarchy reinforces status. Networks value results Hierarchy manages stocks. Networks manage flows. Hierarchy likes secrets. Networks share.
Hierarchy approves, authorises and allocates. Networks learn, enable and do You can wait for your spot in the orderly procession. However the orderly procession might never reach you or might pass you by blind to your talents to walk in lockstep.
