Transform from Industrial Age Design: BetaCodex - Turn Your Company Outside-In!

How to build a devolved cell structured organization and leave the old, slow and bureaucratic structures behind.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, August 7, 2014 1:08 PM

The Beta Codex network has the thinking and design that will help us finally leave old command and control structures, individualistic thinking behind.  Scientific management had its day, back in the 1950's in wide open economic markets.  In competitive, global, digitally powered, high speed markets, hierarchy is so last century.   It's time to change to agile, cellular design that is as adaptable as the next mobile phone operating system.  ~  Deb

Is Collaboration Limited by Organizational Structure?

Is Collaboration Limited by Organizational Structure? | Thriving or Dying in the Project Age | Scoop.it

Organizational design has a huge impact on decision-making and collaboration, and both reflects, and often creates, the level of collaboration and autonomy with and amongst the workforce. Culture may eat strategy for lunch but decision-making, reporting and budgeting structures can either birth or strangle both culture and strategy with both hands tied behind its back.


At this stage we have four primary organizational models along a continuum from command and control to cooperative and anarchic. From GM to Valve we might call it, with a Basecamp and a Zappos thrown in to complete the picture. Each has strengths and weaknesses.

I find the best work on collaboration to be Morten T. Hansen's book, Collaboration: How Leaders Avoid the Traps, Build Common Ground, and Reap Big Results.


Article related to the book: How to build a collaborative advantage from Sloan Review by Morten T. Hansen and Nitin Nohria.

TLS and Velocity novel - 1 page by Claude Emond | Project Times

TLS and Velocity novel - 1 page by Claude Emond | Project Times | Thriving or Dying in the Project Age | Scoop.it

[…] Goldratt and his followers have done it again! This time for the world of continuous improvement management. […] business novel, “Velocity” […] a story telling about realizing rapid and significant continuous improvement results through integrating three approaches: TOC, LEAN and Six Sigma. […] So LEAN, Six-Sigma and the like do not produce good results if applied without taking care of real organisational constraints. […]  traditional approaches have us working very hard to achieve almost no improvements. This integrated approach is even trademarked as iTLS ™ […]

[TLS] is a major breakthrough, that has been going on for at least the last four years. Was I the only one of us sleeping through the birth of TLS? About time I woke up to Velocity!

I've been saying and teaching the same for many, many years now. http://www.projecttimes.com/the-rules-of-lean-project-management-part-6.html . Still, many project specialists, including PMPs (even those who train others) do not understand that. Maybe one day, it will register !
