Workshop Wednesday: How Might We Organize Ourselves Best To…?


Each Wednesday we post a photograph that illustrates some of our work.

This one shows our combination of two principles: phrasing questions with ‘How Might We…’ stimulates divergent thinking, and inviting groups to self-organize increases the engagement of people in them (which increases performance). In this case, the leader made an explicit grant of authority to the group to determine it’s optimal structure as a way to signal just how open to new ideas she was (thus counteracting the dominant command-and-control culture of the company).

Check back next Wednesday for another perspective on how we work.
