The Principles of Dynamic Teaming

The following screencasts were created for the Core Team to help them become more familiar with the basics of dynamic teaming. Learn how dynamic organizations think about work and organizing in the short videos below.

Lesson 1: Thinking Like an Organization Designer

The days of massively disruptive reorgs being the solution to our organizational problems are over. Only organizations full of people thinking about how to make the organization better will survive. Here are the basic ideas of what it means to think like an org designer. 

Lesson 4: Learning, Lean, and Talent Density

Dynamic organizations are learning organizations. Everything they do is an opportunity to learn and get better. They try to stay as lean as possible by becoming as talent dense as possible. Everyone's #1 job in a dynamic organization is to find additional incredible future colleagues.

Lesson 2: Purpose and Transparency

Great organizations know the power of purpose. A great purpose radiates throughout an organization providing every team and individual with a useful prioritizing tool. They also aim for as much transparency as possible in order to build trust and drive efficient communication.

Lesson 5: Continuous Steering, Market Driven, Risk-Taking

The cycle time of everything (work, planning, feedback, budgeting, etc.) must shrink in the quest to continuously steer. Dynamic organizations let market forces pull them into the shape they need to be while following a strategy of "sure things and wild swings."

Lesson 3: Networks and Empowerment

Dynamic organizations are like networks, not rigid hierarchies. In this video learn about the power of networks and why empowering employees with real authority and autonomy is the only way to survive in a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world.
