Thank you Jon Husband!

Per il nostro gruppo  – e l’intero Lab – qualcosa di straordinario è successo.

Jon Husband, il creatore del modello p2p su cui abbiamo scelto di basare la nostra fondazione e il nostro ecosistema (la Wirearchy come ormai saprete dagli articoli precedenti), ci ha raggiunto, entrando a far parte del nostro gruppo Facebook.

Questo ha significato per noi poterci confrontare direttamente su temi, teorie, dubbi e domande che emergevano dalla nostra ricerca con la persona che più di tutte nel mondo avrebbe potuto fornirci risposte.

Virtualmente il Lab si estendeva nel pianeta, dandoci la percezione distinta delle possibilità e dei limiti che una “scuola ubiqua” (qualla che stiamo progettando) ci costringe ad affrontare

Questo è un articolo principalmente dedicato a Jon, per ringraziarlo del tempo e delle conoscenze che spontaneamente ha deciso di offrirci, supportandoci in questo esperimento.

Un piccolo gesto della nostra gratitudine è nella foto in alto, che abbiamo scattato in classe e pubblicato sul gruppo per salutarlo al suo arrivo: un modo per condividere questa peculiare “presenza a distanza” che caratterizza il nostro rapporto.

Infine, per concludere questo breve articolo, vi lasciamo con un estratto da uno scambio avvenuto sul gruppo, lasciato in lingua originale: un confronto teorico che dà lo spessore di queste conversazioni e del loro valore.

A presto!

  • Hi, Bruno.With respect to the next parts of your question ..<< using the term “Gainsharing” in the line “Structural change”? you may also clarify the role of the binomial “Holacracy / Sociocracy” in the org design & effectiveness and how these models interact with the wirearchy system.” >>Gainsharing is a type of remuneration (pay) strategy or philosophy that had a few years of interest / popularity in the late 1980’s / early 1990’s. It is of interest, I believe, in the (eventual) re-structuring of
    organizations because how people are currently positioned in organizations and paid for their work is directly related to traditional hierarchical concepts derived from Taylorism and Fordism.Given that it appears that more and more people will eventually be working in interconnected / networked conditions, the traditional ways of paying people based on hierarchy (of knowledge & skills) and seniority are very likely to come under increasingly intense questioning and scrutiny.Gainsharing in a nutshell is based on everyone sharing (via being paid) in the improvements and ‘gains” made by an organization based on peoples’ efforts at work. Here is a link to a discussion of the concept in Wikipedia: http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gainsharing
    With respect to Holacracy and Sociocracy .. both of those approaches to organizing work and people are I think (based on what I understand so far) a packaging and commercializing of approaches based on the principles of socio-technical systems theory and / or (in the case of holacracy) the use of some of the key elements of Elliott Jaques’ Requisite Organization theory (which in turn is mainly constructed around his Time-Span of Discretion theory). Both have some degree of self-management and greater and decentralized decision-making autonomy woven into the methods. These are evolutionary. We will see more such approaches, I believe .. which is a good thing. Learning by experimenting !Both, I think, are also approaches that could have been derived or designed ‘under’ or using the notion of wirearchy as an organizing principle (I try to stay away from being prescriptive about wirearchy) .. it is in my mind not a solution, prescription or defined approach, but rather a principle to be used to design based on context and purpose. I would say that though, wouldn’t I ?Does that make sense ?

  •  Thanks again for the rapid replies Jon!
    We had already done some research on these terminologies but we wanted to be more sure of what was talking about.
    The concept of Gainsharing we think it is essential, in any way will also be the basis of our internal management.
    We also agree that it is “learning through experimentation” the basis of everything, and it is on this that we also aim.
    Everything that you wrote makes sense, in the coming days we will meet with the group to discuss certain points deeper and in case of other questions we will be happy to ask you. For any other hint or observation we are always here, ready and available!
