The below concepts:

  • Are based on “Chaos Theory” and “Complex Adaptive Systems”.
  • Needed to be implemented to create Eco-Autonomous organization.

1 – No central control

3

 

  • In contrast to the current management system and company structure, we propose decentralized, distributed and autonomous system and structure.
  • Decision making and authority distributed to the company’s groups and individuals.

2 – A company is a set of Entities and Functions

4

 

  • Entities are a grouping of other entities and function that need to work together to reach a common goal (groups in a classical organization).
  • Functions are defined behaviors for given internal/external events and defined interactions with other functions or entities (Duty in the traditional role).

3 – Purpose is the glue

5

 

  • Each element in the company must have a purpose that derived from the company purpose.

4 – Steered by the environment

6

 

  • There shouldn’t be any steering committees or governance body. Steering and governance are done by continuous getting feedbacks from the company environment.

5 – Clear definition of boundaries

7

 

  • Each Entity and Function have a clear definition of their responsibilities and artifacts they need to manage.

6 – Feedback loops

8

 

  • Each Entity and Function must have 5 metrics that indicate if the entity/function progressing toward reaching its goal.

7 – People are filling functions

9

 

  • People are Agents filling one or many functions in different entities.
  • Agents should fill functions based on their knowledge and experience.

8 – No Silos

10

 

  • Entities are set of agents with different expertise and experience needed to reach entity purpose.
  • Departments (or silos) of just one type of expertise with common experience should be replaced by non-siloed entities.

9 – Compensation based on contribution and company performance

11

 

  • Agents should be compensated based on company performance.
  • Agent compensation should be calculated base on the contribution of the functions he is filling.
  • Such compensation model motivates people to collaborate and increase company performance.

10 – Agents are following contracts

12

 

  • Agents are following predefine contracts.
  • If Agent continuously fails to fulfill contracts or presenting negative metrics, he is automatically released from function/s.
  • Other Entity agents are tasks with resolving the new situation.

11 – Agents can define their contribution level

13

 

  • Agents can fill one function that required small dedication to several functions that dedicate a lot of dedication.
  • They will be compensated by the contribution of the functions she is filling.

12 – Each entity can adopt a management system that fit agents memes

14

 

  • An entity is a collection of agents that have a common human psyche.
  • Each entity can adopt a management system that fit agents psychics.

13 – Merit base conflict resolution

15

 

  • Conflicts should be resolved based on a vote that factor people relevant experience and knowledge.

14 – Self-Organized

16

 

  • Entities should create their own order as a result of interactions between agents.
  • The internal structure of an entity is a result of agents interaction and subject to conflict resolution.

15 – Evolving

17

 

  • Equilibrium is death for any system, including organization.
  • Each entity must have a dedicated function to ensure an ongoing evolvement of the entity.
