Gooday. I can not believe it’s time already for another company publication review …
‘ The Starfish & the Spider’ (created by Ori Brafman & Rod Beckstrom) is not your common service publication. As you can possibly tell from its title.
It’s a fascinating read. Weaving tale after story concerning various organization models & information why small organisations can gain competitive benefit over standard big companies.
Essentially Ori & Rod review 3 organization models:
– The conventional centralised model: everything is controlled by the boss
– The crossbreed model: some main control with de-centralised decision making
– The de-centralised version: no central control, all the power is with individuals
They liken a spider to the centralised model. If you chopped it’s head off, killing its controlling brain.
A starfish does not have a brain & if you chopped off its leg, it would expand an additional. As well as (in some cases) the removed leg would certainly turn into a 2nd starfish. Compared to the de-centralised model.
De-centralised models are organisations like Wikipedia or Apache, where control is pushed out to their adheres to with little or no assistance.
A hybrid model is something in between, although more de-centralised than centralised. A fine example would be ebay.com or Skype. Which have some central controls with much de-centralisation.
Guide enters into far more detail than I can in a review & covers an entire load of instances of the various versions. In a fun & engaging method.
My understandings. A de-centralised company with some central controls in a crossbreed design is the future. Pressing power out to your followers & teams will give much more favorable results.
It’s a very thought prompting read. I ‘d suggest it to any kind of existing local business owner or director & any individual with desires of beginning their very own company at some point quickly.
‘ The Starfish & the Spider’ gets a thumbs up & 5-stars.
