Is Structure Obselete?

Red tape.

Slow motion.

Turf wars.

Bloated costs.


Some of the many unintended consequences of organisations with rigid structure.

Many old companies still operate this way. At best slowly sinking into irrelevance. At worst dissapearing faster than they can think.

Many new companies are now starting to explore the opposite extreme. Nothing is fixed. Everything is changing. All the time. No structure.

Will no structure be the new path to success? 

The history of the universe suggests otherwise. Structure is all around us. And inside us. 

Structure that adapts to the environment. Structure that stays connected but separate. With resilience.

Organic structure.
