By  Pim de Morree and originally published at Corporate Rebels These days, there seems to be a massive interest in less hierarchical, more liberated approaches to work. “Agile,” sociocracy, Holacracy, “teal,” self-management, and other management techniques are now of great interest to a growing number of companies around the world. As you probably would have expected, we believe this to be a very positive thing. These approaches—when done well—have the power to boost all sorts of good, desirable things, such as: motivation purpose engagement autonomy productivity profit And the list goes on and on. The popularity contest Unfortunately, there is …

I’ve given a fair number of talks over the last year around the general theme of Rewilding Agile.  And while this post is going to start with the Agile movement which is hitting its twentieth anniversary shortly, the post has much wider applicability which I will develop shortly.  This is also the first of two posts on the subject, today setting context, tomorrow looking at how we can frame situations in ways that respect the ecological nature of our existence and co-dependencies and shift us away from the dominance of an engineering paradigm.  After that second post, we will be at …

This means they need to be optimized for coherence. Coherence refers to a particular dispositional state of a team, where the complex feed loops between trust, power and action thresholds are optimized for flow (see A Source Code for Team Flow). The degree of power asymmetry in the system is a crucial function of team flow. Power asymmetry in turn is a function of information flows and can be regulated by designing resilience through sensemaking up-hierarchies.I introduced the notion of a sensemaking up-hierarchy in my …
