The Future of Organization
The problem.
Organizations are about
mutual value* creation, but it’s
too difficult to give all one can
give and too difficult to derive
all the value there is to derive.
* Value: the importance, worth or usefulness of something.
The Future of Organization
The problem.
Employee engagement*
is symptomatic.
* an employee's involvement with, commitment to, and satisfaction with work

of the people, by
the people, for the
people.

The Future of Organization
“We have learned a great deal; we
are awash with insights; we have
had significant influence on the art
of management. Yet we have failed
to address – in the sustained and
systematic ways they merit – some
of the central problems of
organization and governance.”
Philip
Selznick

The Future of Organization
complexity

noun:

• a system in which there are multiple
interactions between many different
components

• bridges the gap between the individual
and the collective

• may lead to emergent behavior
The Future of Organization
order leads to chaos
chaos leads to order
The Future of Organization
“… emergence is a
ubiquitous feature of
the world around us”

John H. Holland, Emergence: From
Chaos to Order, 1999
“[T]here is a co-operation of things
of unlike kinds. The emergent is
unlike its components . . . and it
cannot be reduced to their sum or
their difference”

G.H. Lewes, 1875
G.H. Lewes
The Future of Organization
“They get their smarts from
below. … In these systems,
agents residing on one scale
start producing behavior that
lies one scale above them.”

Stephen Johnson, Emergence, 2001
“All new organisational forms, no
matter how radically new, are
combinations and permutations
of what was there before.”

The Emergence of Organizations and Markets,

Padgett, Powell, 2012
The Future of Organization
“In the short run, actors
create relations; in the
long run, relations
create actors.”

The Future of Organization
Saying goodbye
to some familiar
heuristics.
The Future of Organization
Actually, it’s
all in the
complex mix
our people
are our greatest
asset
it’s all about
shareholder
value
the customer!
is king
The Future of Organization
Organizations are relationships.

They entail the constant adaption
of the way we think and behave in
order to influence others to think
and behave differently in support
of our goals.
Relationships
at scale
The Future of Organization
“Customer-centricity is an
organizational point of view, not a
customer point of view. It’s actually
the organization-centric-view-of-the-
customer.”

“Don’t you want CRM to help you and
the customer mutually, allowing you
both to manage the relationship? …
Or would you rather propagate the
status quo – CRM as a construct to
manage the customer?”

Influence.

You have been influenced
when you think something you
wouldn’t otherwise have
thought, or do something you
wouldn’t otherwise have done.

The numbers are just labels, not a ranking of importance
The Future of Organization
“There’s influence in
everything an organization
does, and sometimes in
what it does not do.”

“What is the intended outcome of
your marketing and PR campaigns,
and the design of your organization
overall, if it’s not to get stakeholders
to think and behave as you’d like,
and to be sensitive to how they’d
like you to think and behave?”

Influence
The Future of Organization
“Whereas traditional business
relies on some bureaucracy to
determine what constitutes
organizational knowledge, this
function is delegated to the
individual who now determines
whether something is worth
sharing / passing on or not,
explicitly or tacitly.”
www.attenzi.com/forty-three/
Knowledge
The Future of Organization
Personal Knowledge Mastery
A set of processes, individually
constructed, to help each of us

“patterns of idea flow … are

is not a magic bullet.”

“Exploration [a mathematical
measure of the extent to which

innovation and creative output.”

Serendipity

The occurrence and
development of events by
chance in a happy or
beneficial way.

… All you have to rely on if
you can’t identify and interpret
patterns systematically.

The Future of Organization
Digital nervous system

“The winners will be the ones who
develop a world-class digital
nervous system so that
information can easily flow through
their companies for maximum and
constant learning.

… To think, act, react, and adapt.”
Bill Gates
Business @ the Speed of Thought, 1999, ISBN: 0446525685

www.attenzi.com/fifty-nine-ii/
The Future of Organization
1999 → 2014

Now, our nervous system extends
out into the world.

Gates advised building an ideal
picture of the information you
need from technology. Now, we
also want technology to help us
build that picture.
www.attenzi.com/fifty-nine-ii/
The Future of Organization
IT now interweaves with the reality
that provided the metaphors.

The Internetome:

the manifestations (facets and
implications) of the Internet of
Things.
Internetome conference, 2010, www.philipsheldrake.com/2014/04/internetome/
The Future of Organization
Business performance
management

A discipline encompassing
metric selection, measurement
and organizational learning.

We’re moving such capability
towards real-time sensory
feedback in an organization-as-
organism / business-as-biology
metaphor.
The Future of Organization
Web 3.0

The web as a universal medium
for the exchange of data,
information and knowledge.

The Future of Organization
“Hegel didn’t rate public opinion.
He didn’t think it could appreciate
the shades of grey in serious
matters, but has a tendency
instead to polarize argument …”

He said we don’t learn from
history. Might we now learn from
our digital history?

When one stakeholder
group in an organization
takes permanent priority
over another, that’s not
organization.
When one always loses a
little when another wins a
little, all lose a little.
The Future of Organization
Empowerment
“Any increase in worker power
that enables them to achieve
organizational objectives.”
Manifest in four cognitions:
meaning, competence, self-

The Future of Organization
Ideas for

The Future of Organization
“Work has profoundly changed in
recent years … a new normal …
based on principles and practices we
don’t totally understand …

Something new must be found,
perhaps distilled from the latent
energy in social connection and
frictionless communication, and it
must be tapped even if the workforce
is harder to lead than ever before.”

The Future of Organization
“There is probably no single
management methodology or
organisational structure that can
meet all the needs of a growing

practices to evolve over time to
meet new challenges.”

The Future of Organization
Organization is a global public resource
that must remain open and accessible.

Organization must enrich the lives of
individual human beings.

Individuals’ security and privacy in
organizations are fundamental and
must not be treated as optional.

The Future of Organization
Individuals must have the ability to
shape the organization and their own
experiences in the organization. 

The effectiveness of the organization as
a public resource depends upon
interoperability (protocols, data formats,
content), innovation and decentralized
participation worldwide.

Free and open source software
promotes the development of
organizations as a public resource.
