Friday reading: liquid organisation

Posted on Posted in management

If you are somehow involved into organisational design. This is worth reading for inspiration and knowledge – http://liquidorganisation.info/

Quote from the paper:

You might have heard of a new breed of organisational models, responding to the fast growing adaptability, engagement and collaboration needs within modern company structures. Or you might have simply experienced the sound problems of slowness, rigidity, bureaucracy, disengagement along with various kinds of waste and bottlenecks that “traditional” organisational models generate and suffer nowadays.

  1. Very interesting ideas for organization or part of it, which is focused on development of new products or services. For the fullness of a picture, i’m interested about ideas for applicability of it to the operations part of bigger organization or even the “selling products and services for the only sake of it” part in their own words.

    I suspect their company is project based and do not need to continually support the once developed results. I also suspect it is small in size and focused on narrow set of skills/products/services since i cannot imagine designer evaluating accountant contribution or programmer evaluating sales guy’s value creation.

    Nevertheless it sounds ideal for R&D part of any company. I’m looking forward to hear about successful cases of adoption of this model. Are you willing to try it Andrej?

    1. That company is 50 people now. Its not so small and these methods prove themselves to be working well in growing companies.

      I will think of sharing more about our experiments, but sometimes its difficult to put it on paper. And at the moment we are setting the framework for a change. Looking forward for a lots of experiments 🙂

    2. Forgot to add. Going to use this approach – quote from the book:
      “The transition would be gradual, one product area at a time, and most important, the individual teams would be expected to work out the details of the new process.”
