This week i have been playing around with some work around the scale of Organisations, and how they can grow, whilst remaining ‘small’. This illustration is one of a series that consider how different aspects of the Organisation scale: comparing the bricks of the office with the leaders who inhabit it.
I use the term ‘magic’, to say that the bricks scale into the building with ‘no magic required’, whilst we must ask ourselves how the other aspects scale: leadership, innovation, efficiency, or engagement. Do they need a certain type of magic? I have previously explored this in the Learning Science work, considering how some things are ‘emergent’.
I am not intending to produce the work this week as a coherent body, but at this stage am playing with ideas and language as part of #WorkingOutLoud.
