Self-organising capability

At Gladwell Academy we’ve observed that the impact of technology and data powers an increase in people’s ability to self-organise, in all layers of professional life. Everyone is, in principle, directly and holographically connected, both to each other and to any relevant information. This removes much of the necessity for hierarchic structures and chains of command. The result ought to be a more self-starting and self-governing workforce, along with more joy and satisfaction from work. We wholeheartedly embrace and advance these developments, and we teach people to take charge actively and proficiently.
