Delegate all authority for making governance decisions to self-governing circles, double-linked across all levels of the hierarchy, to transition from an traditional hierarchy towards a structure more suitable for tapping collective intelligence, ensuring equivalence and building engagement.
- Shift governance decision making from individuals to teams by forming self-governing circles on all levels of your organization.
- Each circle’s members select one of their group to represent their interests and participate in the governance decision making of the next higher circle, and vice versa.
A double-linked hierarchy:
- brings equivalence to governance
- maintains the potential for a functional hierarchy (if it enables the flow of value).
