Transcript of SIDEARM: Self-organizing for Innovation, Decisions, Engagement, Action, and Risk Mitigation
What's The Problem?
What's Are We Proposing?
What Do We Get?

“The recent failure rate of chief executives in big American companies points in the same direction. A large proportion of CEOs of such companies appointed in the past ten years were fired as failures within a year or two. But each of these people had been picked for his proven competence, and each had been highly successful in his previous jobs. This suggests that the jobs they took on had become undoable. The American record suggests not human failure but systems failure. Top management in big organizations needs a new concept.”
- Peter Drucker

“Almost the only class of complex system in the universe that is not purely self-organizing is the modern business corporation and other hierarchical organizations modeled on it.”

If we can't make the problem "small", can we enable the organization act nimbly?
Can we compress the organization?
Two complementary and compatible compressions
Horizontal Compression -- Visual Models
Vertical Compression -- Bossless Organization
"Bigger is better"
Artifacts from a simpler time
Nodes, conflicts, delays, shifts
