Cooperation emerges when groups are small and memories are long, study finds

Cooperation emerges when groups are small and memories are long, study finds | Thriving or Dying in the Project Age | Scoop.it
The tragedy of the commons, a concept described by ecologist Garrett Hardin, paints a grim view of human nature. The theory goes that, if a resource is shared, individuals will act in their own self-interest, but against the interest of the group, by depleting that resource.
Yet examples of cooperation and sharing abound in nature, from human societies down to single-celled bacteria.
In a new paper, published in the journal Scientific Reports, University of Pennsylvania researchers use game theory to demonstrate the complex set of traits that can promote the evolution of cooperation. Their analysis showed that smaller groups in which actors had longer memories of their fellow group members' actions were more likely to evolve cooperative strategies.
The work suggests one possible advantage of the human's powerful memory capacity: it has fed our ability as a society to cooperate.

Cause and Purpose vs Urgency for Change? 

Cause and Purpose vs Urgency for Change?  | Thriving or Dying in the Project Age | Scoop.it
Claude Emond's insight:

Very good post by Jason Little.
Urgency will get you nowhere if there is no underlying cause and purpose. It is shared cause and purpose that give some sense to our work and that are the foundations of alignment, durable employee engagement and resulting performance and success in the face of continuous change. The French (Jerome Barrand - http://en.grenoble-em.com/directory/jerome-barrand ) have created a new word for all this cause and purpose stuff: «effisens»: «effisense» would be the english translation. Ultimately, if «effisense» is lacking, efficiency is an illusion and effectiveness is targetless ! Urgency gives an «urge» for speed. Cause and purpose give a direction to this speed, it generates velocity (speed with a vector going in the right direction ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6lrr6-ADY0 ).
This whole thing reminds me of a poster we had in our offices a long time ago. It was showing a guy running with a big pack-sack on his back with the caption; «I don't know where I am going, but I am sure going there fast». That's the same as having a sense of urgency with no organizational cause and purpose! :)

This article highlights what CEO's can do to encourage open and honest dialogue, which ultimately helps the organisation move forward and improve in ways that make sense.  Too often, there is a culture of "The Emperor's Clothes" in operation, with either the CEO only wanting to focus on the "positive to keep employees motivated", or where employees don't feel able to tell the "truth" of their experiences.
