I think what you are describing in a way, Thierry, is the concept of tribes, the fact that a group can self-perform because they establish their own rules and as you say, they privilege the one who has ideas and can drive the tribes to live differently and grow, compared to the one which are witnesses within the tribes. But the reality unfortunately is not like that, but it could in the future, an organization could behave much more like a tribe, compared to what we have today. I think, one of the major barrier which we have at the moment in organizations, is that we are trying to control diversity, and actually diversity can be a real richness for an organization.
But somehow, we are being formatted, you know you are selected for that job, because you have the right qualification as you say. You know, we kind of push away those who may be creative, wild, troublemakers, troubleshooters and because it doesn’t fit within today’s perfect society. And I think it’s that diversity which we need to bring back into organizations. And allow for people to be creative; and it’s a little bit what Google has done, they have allowed for that level of creativity and craziness to happen. So at some point, it’s bringing new discoveries, but they can afford it, so that’s probably why they were able to do it. But it would be an interesting concept. I think there was actually an interesting study on that called the Hybrid Organization where they are reflecting on new models, around the organization and how much the “let it go” was important into the design of an organization. So it’s something which could be easily injected into an organization. It’s probably easier for small and medium sized companies to actually do that, compared to very large scale companies. You shouldn’t control diversity, you shouldn’t.
