Mathias Holmgrem interviews Bonnitta Roy, originally published as a single article on crisp.se Part 1 of this article is here. Can you give us a short introduction of your experience and what you enjoy working with? I have always been fascinated with the natural world. As I child I would spend summer evenings watching ants come and go, carrying their eggs, building their nests, foraging for food and occasionally squabbling over territory. This led to an attraction toward natural systems design in gardening and farming, but also as it applies to companies, education and community associations. I studied neuroscience and …

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 …
