#Nomadisme #digital et émancipation par #Holacracy

Article sympathique sur ces deux sujets ici :

Un nombre croissant d’entrepreneurs et de start-up s’affranchissent des structures managériales archaïques. Le nomadisme numérique et l’holacratie émergent. Toujours plus de sociétés mais également de services publics cherchent de nouvelles façons de travailler. Découverte en cinq épisodes

“La multiplication des chefs de projet est une catastrophe managériale majeure”, affirme le sociologue François Dupuy

Excellent article relevant une visiblement excellente pensée critique du sociologue François Dupuy que je découvre.

Pour ma part, la multiplication des chefs de projet est une conséquence de l’inutilité, voire la nocivité des techniques de management actuelles (et le refus de leur remise en cause et de l’acceptation de dégâts qu’elles provoquent) : face au bazar dans l’entreprise, la seule réponse actuelle est de mettre un chef de projet pour tenter de le gérer (avec tous les paradoxes relevés dans l’article ci-dessous), alors qu’il ne devrait pas y avoir de bazar au départ ! Et quand le bazar devient trop important, on fait une réorganisation, sans remettre en cause les principes sous-jacent de la gouvernance interne de l’entreprise : encore plus de la même chose… en s’attendant à des résultats différents. Selon Einstein, c’est la définition de la folie…

Allez voir l’article sinon, il est relativement court et… percutant !

#Sociocracy and #Holacracy

May 27th, 2015 Posted in Change Tags: , , , ,

I’ve happily discovered the “new version” of Sociocracy as 3.0. Please go check there; the link with Holacracy as a past dissidence is explicited, but seems to have been integrated in the new sociocracy. I love this new version (much clearer) and probably more than Holacracy because I find it simpler to understand. I’ll seriously consider using it especially after having read that “undercover guerilla” Sociocracy for One.

Of course, version 4.x of Holacracy is just around the corner (in open-source, on Github, whoohoo!) so I’ll have to check that one too!

Really interesting post from Otto Scharmer about the next next generation of MOOCs! I’m seeing connections with our co-creation open-source #Labso (www.labso.org)…

Last month my colleagues and I completed a pilot of what well may be the most interesting project of my life. It was the pilot of a new type of MOOC that pushes the MOOC design envelope by blending a globally transformative platform with an eco-system of deep personal, locally grounded learning communities.

Christopher Alexander Fifteen Properties of #Wholeness applied to Mental Models #systemsthinking

It’s been a while since I’ve been pondering the fifteen properties of wholeness as expressed by Christopher Alexander. Although I have yet to read one of his book, his work has transpired up to me already through the well know pattern languages.

Being found of Systems Thinking and the transdiscplinarity this permits, I couldn’t help but wonder how these 15 properties could apply to mind and mental models as well, and how it could inform our feeling of wholeness or explain when we feel like being one and belonging to a bigger, encompassing one as well. Sounds like spirituality to me, although I consider myself an atheist!

Of course, feeling also attracted to radical constructivism and social constructionism, I can safely affirm that you both are influenced by what you distinguish in the world around you and that you construct what you’re looking for. So, I hope the interpretation I give below (which is purely empirical… or my own construct) may be useful both as a way to construct that feeling of wholeness than as a way to find where it may exist when you didn’t feel it in the first place. Now, back to constructivism: where’s the difference between building and finding-and-constructing at the same time?

Here is my inner travel through the fifteen properties of wholeness. Fancy a trip with me? Here we go… Read more »

Inverse correlation between designing #change and resisting it.

February 26th, 2015 Posted in Change Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’ve been told a very old study, dated back ni 1948 reported a negative correlation between designing and resisting to a change: the more you participated in designing a change, the less you resisted it.

Of course, we all know this (albeit still try to push our ideas onto others, making them resisting), but knowing it’s really old facts, with measures is really interesting to me.

I don’t have the full paper yet, but below is the information I was given about it. Update: I did finally found it, see bottom of this paper. Thanks to Patrick Hoverstadt for the references!
