The world is dynamic, moving fast, and difficult to predict. Given such volatile conditions, consider building your organisation out of granular, dynamic building blocks (roles) rather than coarse-grained, rigid units (positions).

To build a physical structure that lasts, you have to carefully consider the building blocks. If they are too clunky and rigid, the structure snaps under the pressure of external forces. Architects and structural designers know this well, and have developed techniques to make sure a building withstands pressure. How can we apply this knowledge toward building resilient conceptual structures such as an organisation?

One simple, yet powerful idea…


See your organisation as you’ve never seen it before.
