Building Self Managed Teams: Object Oriented Organizations

9,798 views

Published on

Self managed teams can build larger organizations and provide a better work experience for professionals.

But how can we build self-managed teams and integrate them within larger organizations?

The proposed idea is Object Oriented Organizations - a concept and technique that was previously devised for software development and may work great in managerial practice also.

Building Self Managed Teams: Object Oriented Organizations

  1. 1. WE (HUMANS) ARE AT THE PEAK OF OUR CIVILIZATION IN TERMS OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, SOCIAL COOPERATION AND GLOBAL COMMUNICATION
  2. 2. THE GWP (GROSS WORLD PRODUCT) IS AT ITS HIGHEST AND GROWING THE FASTEST IN RECORDED HISTORY SOURCE: HTTPS://EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG/WIKI/GROSS_WORLD_PRODUCT
  3. 3. COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY IS QUICKLY ADOPTED AND MAKES THE WORLD SMALLER AND MORE EFFECTIVE. THERE ARE NOW ALMOST 7 BILLION MOBILE CONNECTIONS AND OVER 3 BILLION INTERNET USERS.
  4. 4. THIS SMALLER AND BETTER WORLD WAS MADE POSSIBLE BY MANY THINGS. BUT ONE STANDS OUT, THOUGH NOT CLAIMING THE SPOTLIGHT. IT’S MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGY AND KNOW- HOW.
  5. 5. WE’VE BUILT A MORE PRODUCTIVE, MORE CONNECTED WORLD BECAUSE WE’VE BUILT BIGGER AND BETTER ORGANIZATIONS
  6. 6. AS THE MILITARY HAS BEEN THE SINGLE MOST ENDURING FORM OF HUMAN ORGANIZATION THROUGHOUT HISTORY (SECONDED ONLY BY RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS), IT SEEMED LOGICAL TO APPROACH ORGANIZATIONAL MANAGEMENT BASED ON MARTIAL MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES. THE LARGEST ORGANIZATIONS ARE ORGANIZED AND BEHAVE JUST LIKE ARMIES. TOP DOWN COMMAND WITH INTEL GOING UPSTREAM AND ORDERS GOING DOWNSTREAM. THE MULTINATIONAL COMPANIES “CONQUER” MARKETS, “TARGET” CUSTOMERS AND “SECURE” MARKET SHARE.
  7. 7. AS COMPANIES NEED EFFECTIVENESS TO STAY PROFITABLE, STRATEGY IS DESIGNED BY A SMALL GROUP OF PEOPLE (THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS) AND IMPLEMENTED TOP-DOWN BY AN EXECUTIVE STAFF. TO DO SO – THE EXECUTIVE STAFF USES COMPANY PROCESS DESIGN AND PROCEDURES THAT ARE FOLLOWED BY THOSE LOWER ON THE HIERARCHY.
  8. 8. BASICALLY, THAT’S HOW LARGE ORGANIZATIONS WORK TODAY:
  9. 9. THE PROBLEM: THIS STRUCTURE IS NOT WORKING ANYMORE. WE SEE THE EFFECTS IN GLOBAL DEBT, WORKING CONDITIONS AND INEQUITY.

  15. 15. SO LET’S GET THIS STRAIGHT: EVEN THOUGH WE ARE MORE PRODUCTIVE THAN EVER, WE, AS A SPECIES, ARE ALSO: - MORE INDEBTED - LESS HAPPY WITH OUR WORK - EARN LESS THAN EVER
  16. 16. WE HAVE OUTGROWN OUR MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IN A WORLD WHERE ORGANIZATIONS GROW BIGGER AND REACH FARTHER THAN EVER, WE NEED A SYSTEM WHERE SUCH ORGANIZATIONS CAN SELF-MANAGE
  17. 17. CAN WE FIND ONE?
  18. 18. SIMPLE: SOFTWARE
  19. 19. THERE ARE MANY SIMILARITIES BETWEEN ORGANIZATIONS AND HARDWARE-SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENTS:
  20. 20. THE PRINCIPLE WE USE TODAY TO MANAGE ORGANIZATIONS WAS ALSO USED IN THE BEGINNINGS OF COMPUTER PROGRAMMING. PROGRAMS WERE FED INTO COMPUTERS TO COMPUTE DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS FOR THINGS SUCH AS THE TRAJECTORY OF A SHELL, A BLAST RADIUS OR WEATHER PREDICTIONS. THESE PROGRAMS WERE FED INTO A GENERAL PURPOSE MACHINERY (THE COMPUTER) AND BASED ON THESE INSTRUCTIONS COMPUTATIONS WOULD BE MADE.
  21. 21. BUT AS THE COMPUTER INDUSTRY GREW, SO DID THE COMPUTERS’ CAPACITY TO RUN PROGRAMS. WITH THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION COMPUTERS BECAME MORE THAN SIMPLISTIC MACHINERY BUILT TO OUTPUT SPECIFIC DATA. PROGRAMS COULD BE NOW WRITTEN TO ANSWER MATHEMATICAL QUESTIONS BUT ALSO TO OUTPUT IMAGERY, SOUNDS, ALLOW USERS TO PLAY GAMES AND MORE. TO MAKE THIS POSSIBLE, A NEW PARADIGM IN COMPUTER PROGRAMMING CHANGED THE WAY PROGRAMS WERE WRITTEN. INSTEAD OF THE PREVIOUS FUNCTIONAL (PROCEDURAL) PROGRAMMING, THE CONCEPT OF BUILDING A PROGRAM STARTED WORKING WITH THE CONCEPT OF “OBJECTS”.
  22. 22. TECHNICALLY, OBJECTS ARE A COLLECTION OF DATA AND FUNCTIONS. CONCEPTUALLY THEY ARE THE BRIDGE BETWEEN MACHINE PROCESSING AND HUMAN CONCEPTUAL THINKING. WE INTERACT WITH THE WORLD AROUND US WITH THE HELP OF THIS SIMPLE CONCEPT: THE OBJECTS. OBJECTS ARE A COLLECTION OF DATA (FOR EXAMPLE A BALL MAY BE ORANGE, TEXTURED AND A SPHERE) AND BEHAVIORS (IT BOUNCES, IT FLOATS IN WATER)
  23. 23. TO IMPLEMENT OBJECT ORIENTED ORGANIZATIONS WOULD MEAN THAT INSTEAD OF THIS:
  24. 24. …ORGANIZATIONS WOULD BE BUILD BY NETWORKING INDEPENDENT, SELF- CONTAINED, SELF-MANAGED ORGANIZATIONAL OBJECTS. LIKE THIS:
  25. 25. HERE’S HOW A COMPUTER MANUFACTURING ORGANIZATION MIGHT LOOK LIKE (SIMPLIFIED)
  26. 26. NOTICE THAT ORGANIZATIONAL OBJECTS ARE NETWORKED, RATHER THAN HIERARCHICAL
  27. 27. TEAMS ARE ORGANIZED AROUND PURPOSE AND INTERACT WITH ONE ANOTHER

  32. 32. 2. USING AN OOO APPROACH ORGANIZATIONS BECOME MORE EFFECTIVE, MORE PRODUCTIVE, HAPPIER THERE ARE OBVIOUS FAILURES IN TODAY’S MANAGERIAL APPROACH. USING A PURPOSE BASED, NETWORKED APPROACH, MANY OF THESE PROBLEMS MAY BE SOLVED.
  33. 33. 3. GLOBAL ORGANIZATIONS ARE MAKING THE WORLD SMALLER AND BETTER LARGER ORGANIZATIONS, BUILT TO NETWORK AND CREATE RATHER THAN EXECUTE MAY BE THE NEXT STEP IN OUR SOCIAL EVOLUTION
