This is a topic that comes up so much in the modern workplace, but I wonder what people think it really means. I also wonder how we'd explain it's importance to a five year old! If it's ever going to catch on, I think this is a crucial step.
Some primers, to give you an idea of the sort of 'self-organization' i'm referring to (not necessary of course):
- Is there too much management? Self-Management?
- Bureaucracy, and what's wrong with it (if anything).
- Networks, and why they are important (or not)
- Complexity theory (now you're getting deep)
