HAROLD JARCHE [Network] our future is networked and feminine
| SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2017
As we enter an era where the Network form (T+I+M+N) gains dominance, most of the previous organizational forms will evolve to adapt to the new form. The Network form puts into question our current market dominated forms, including our institutions and our families. One potential aspect of the Network era is that it will retrieve a more Oral form of discourse, albeit in a new, electric manner. Will the Network era change this?

HAROLD JARCHE [Network] perspectives on new work – synopsis
| TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2017
The Internet-based firm sees work and cognitive capability as networked communication. A networked business increases its intellectual capital as the nodes of the network do the same. The network acts as an amplifier of knowledge, but the demands on the worker grow. Thus, we should pay much more attention to the strength and number of relationships and the breadth and depth of networked thinking. You will become your network.

| THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2017
To deal with this complexity, organizations should loosen hierarchies and strengthen networks. Leadership in networks is an emergent property. In networks, everyone can be a contributor within a transparent environment. Effective networks are diverse and open. Anyone can lead in a network, if there are willing followers. They are in service to the network, to help keep it resilient through transparency, diversity of ideas, and openness.

We are in the early stages of an emerging era where network modes of organization dominate over institutions and markets. Networks naturally route around hierarchy.

HAROLD JARCHE [Network] the future of work is perpetual beta
| SUNDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2017
As networked computers and the algorithms behind them become more powerful, even more complicated work will get automated. Automation is a force that is continuously changing the nature of human work. First it replaced brute force with powerful machines, changing the nature of agriculture, mining, construction, and other fields of human activity. Then automated programs replaced simple work like withdrawing money from a bank account.

This same line of reasoning has led industry colleagues like John Hagel to conclude that scalable learning , especially across organizations as Don Tapscott has noted in his research on Global Solution Networks , is essentially the only sustainable competitive advantage. I’ve long noticed an interesting phenomena when it comes to more fully digitizing our organizations. Namely, that it mostly looks like what other organizations have already been doing.

Facebook dominates online social networking. Our social networks define us, as Christakis & Fowler clearly showed in their 2011 book, Connected. As part of a social network, we transcend ourselves, for good or ill, and become a part of something much larger. “The reason Facebook is important, in a way that TV ads are not, is that it’s a place that you interact with your social networks and information from your own information sources, plus pay-for-play stuff.

If we are indeed in an epochal transition, then the most important work is developing new models, metaphors , and understanding of what a network/social society should look like. Our dominant organizational models need to become network-centric and especially learning-centric.
