Capability: Plug and Play or Plant and Grow?

It’s easy to think of an Organisation as a structure that we must plug people into – domains and hierarchy trick us into this view.

This will give us one type of capability: a known one, a predictable one. A fragile one.

But what if we reimagine the organisation with a more fluid view of capability: one that grows out of people?

In this view, structure fades into the background.

Primacy is given to enabling leadership: nurturing, connecting, believing.

An Organisation that is less rigid, more fluid, highly interconnected. Socially Dynamic as opposed to Structurally Dynamic.

Many of our decisions, in strategy or operation, rest on our mindset: do we want the strength of yesterday, or to grow the strength for tomorrow?
