  6. 6. The questions that have been guiding Dee Hock through his life, and through his book, are as follows: -> Why are organizations, everywhere, whether political, commercial, or social, increasingly unable to manage their affairs? -> Why are individuals, everywhere, increasingly in conflict with and alienated from the organizations of which they are a part? -> Why are society and the biosphere increasingly in disarray?
  7. 7. "We must seriously question the concepts underlying the current structure of organizations and whether they are suitable to the management of accelerating societal and environmental problems and, even beyond that, we must seriously consider whether they are the primary cause of those problems.“ Dee Hock
  8. 8. Chaordic [kay'ordic] adj. fr. chaos and order: 1. the behaviour of any self-governing organism, organization or system which harmoniously blends characteristics of order and chaos. 2. patterned in a way dominated by neither chaos or order. 3. characteristic of the fundamental organizing principles of evolution and nature.

  18. 18. The Ball Game Purpose: Be as efficient as possible!
  19. 19. The Ball Principles 1.- The ball must pass through each one of us 2.- Everybody must touch the ball at least with one hand 3.- Follow the same sequence once and again 4.- The ball may be passed to the person in front of you but not to the person besides you. 5.- If the ball falls, we start again, following the same sequence. 6.- You choose your goals
  20. 20. Questions about the Ball Game: - How can we describe what happened during the game? - Which pictures of the game will remain in your memory? - Which were the helping forces that contributed to success? - Which were the hindering forces ? - What can we learn from this game?
  21. 21. The Juggling Game Purpose: Keep the balls moving!!
  22. 22. The Juggling Game 1.- Balls should be moving all the time 2.- Follow the same sequence once and again 3.- The ball may be passed to the person in front of you but not to the person besides you. 4.- If one ball falls, pick it up and keep on playing. 5.- No clock. No pressure 6.- Play and enjoy.
  23. 23. Juggling - How can we describe what happened during the game? - Feelings, emotions, attitudes, behaviors… -Which pictures of the game will remain in your memory? - Which were the helping forces that contributed to success? - Which were the hindering forces? -What similiarities can we find between your organization and the game? - What if each ball were a metaphore of some variable in your organization? - - What can we learn from this game?
