Future of organizations

For the future organization any employee is able to act as a teacher or student that can learn from colleagues anytime and anywhere. Of course, this is largely facilitated through the use of collaborative technologies. Profit is just the financial gain that an organization receives and it’s the primary measure of success for most of them.

Designing the organization of the future is a difficult, sometimes messy project of trial and error, not an exercise on paper. It is a continuous, dynamic, and, in a sense, neverending process.

This is why the organization of the future is a “network of teams” (see figure 2). Top companies are built around systems that encourage teams and individuals to meet each other, share information transparently, and move from team to team depending on the issue to be addressed.
