    [Personal, Policies] distributing power for the network era
    The problem with the American model is that it leads to hubris, with few checks and balances on the person in charge. A certain amount of command and control, exercised through a hierarchy is often necessary to get work done. I suggest temporary, negotiated hierarchies so that teams can form and re-form depending on what needs to be done. Reorganization can be inherent in the enterprise structure and not a cataclysmic event that happens only when management systems fail.

    The idea that a lone person working in a lab can come up with a brilliant idea is largely unfounded. Finally, it’s rather obvious that many HR policies imply that people cannot be trusted. Almost all IT policies say that. Why should I, as an OD/HR/L&D professional, concerned with the human aspects of organizations, have to understand social media and enterprise social networks?
