Some initial thoughts on how a value net can be better than a traditional organisation in today’s world.
- Agile – because there is no committee or management tiers, decisions and actions are much faster.
- Accountable – each individual takes responsibility for their work; their survival depends on accountability and quality output.
- Adaptive – the right individuals can be selected at the right time to produce the right outcome. These individuals can come from anywhere around the world. They are also free to develop their own skill sets subject to their own perceptions.
- (More likely to be) ethical – there is no corporate policies to hide behind. Each individual operates to their own ethics and morals more transparently. Their actions say to the world who they are, and whether people will want to work with them.
- (More likely to be) innovative – individuals participating in a value net are more likely to be deep generalists with diverse skill sets. This is embedded innovation at every point of the value chain.
