Re: Everybody is an architect, except when they're not

"I suspect that true self-organising teams are very few and far between." I suspect this, also. And I offer an explanation (at least, maybe a partial explanation): The vast majority of (Ad-hoc or Analytical) knowledge-work organisations out there do not tolerate self-organisation within e.g. teams. (Actually, there's lots of other effective policies and practices they don't tolerate either, but I digress). So, relatively very few (e.g. Synergistic) organisations - where self-organisation can take root and flourish - even exist. And even with a tolerant or, better, a supportive environment, self-organising teams take time, effort, and diligent application to form, storm, norm and (ultimately) perform. This latter issue is only compounded by the widespread practice of repeatedly setting-up and tearing-down teams, in the context of "projects" and project work. Little wonder, then, that high-performance self-organising teams seem so rare? - Bob (@FlowchainSensei)
