Biological Teams inspire our Organizations

Long time friend Ken Thompson is featured with his Bioteams, in the Socialcast blog; they both provide a flow of truly interesting ideas on evolving organizations.

Watch the beautiful info-graphic, and notice how human teams and organizations, while learning from bioteams, have characteristics that enable us to do even better.

Ken’s ideas have been becoming mainstream in term of explaining how human teams, and organization, could develop. I have myself supported the idea of distributed leadership, and facilitative leadership within an interpretation of organizations as complex adaptive systems. This is a brief description of complex adaptive systems, and here you can go into much more depth.

And now one question:

If we interpret our organizations as complex adaptive systems and if we find inspiration from Bioteams, how are today’s organizational leaders to evolve their role, and their mindset, in order to thrive with their people and organizations?
