Summary of Trends
It’s a kind of magic…
Collaboration has always been a place of magic. But technology-enabled collaboration has the power to reimagine the workforce if it’s fully ingrained into new business models. When this happens, future organizational structures can evolve towards more decentralized operation, demanding fewer physical assets, less energy, less travel, less control – even fewer leaders. Indeed, a kind of magic.
If hybrid working is here to stay, then having a Fluid Workforce is vital. That’s why organizations are now customizing hybrid work models, with clear demarcation of the extent of remote work allowed for employees based on their roles and responsibilities.
The Team is the Canvas
Now that working online has become the accepted standard, we are shaping the canvas on which we work in such a way that it optimizes personal and team needs. This canvas is fast becoming the new natural place for creating next-level business results.
Taken by Tokens
Tokens bring a very particular set of skills. Skills that have been acquired during the long evolution of blockchain technology. Skills that will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of regulated markets by bridging the gap between traditional and decentralized operations.
Your Mesh for Less
With ‘mesh’ technology, it’s easier than ever for organizations to join forces – even if it is lightweight, just for one day, for one occasion, or for one customer. Shared resources and sustainable consumption can help organizations reduce costs and achieve better efficiency.
The new trend within We Collaborate this year sounds like it wouldn’t be very collaborative at all – but just hear us out. No Leaders is all about leveraging autonomous, decentralized, token-enabled platforms to achieve joint objectives, but without the typical red tape of corporate leadership. What this means is cooperation without subordination – without the overhead of central leadership – solely focusing on value creation and achieving joint purposes.
Just imagine if trust and funding, the essential foundations to set up any organization, were coded in smart contracts and were publicly verifiable: step into the world of tamper-proof global entities called DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations). Distribution of power in these DAOs is collective and ‘heterarchical’. This leads to unique, lightweight yet robust governance models with a group of committed contributors, driven by common values.
DAOs offer a way to achieve greater transparency, adaptability, and speed. Rapid experimentation and the potential to direct activity towards a multiplicity of goals with sub-DAOs and structures for streamlining are also possible. Yes, some degree of centralization is required to make it work. But surely this is a concept that leads the way?
