What is a decentralized organization?
Today, an increasing number of leading businesses are moving away from their traditional hierarchical structure by giving their employees the power to make decisions for the company. While the term may be unfamiliar, the names of companies that are implementing forms of decentralization are well-known and highly regarded: Johnson & Johnson, Zappos, Toyota, Valve, and so many more.
The Decision-Making Employee offers answers to the questions:
What is a decentralized organization and why are they growing in popularity?
What is the intersection between improvisational acting and this form of organizational management?
Why is decentralization the next revolution in business?
Use this book as a tool to help both you and your company thrive in this ongoing business revolution.
The “Sociogenesis” Monograph continues the discussion that Devin Marty began in his first book, “The Decision-Making Employee, how to succeed in a decentralized organization.”
The core values expressed in this body of work derive from the social and economic philosophies of Fredrick Hayek, whose seminal work, “The Use of Knowledge in Society,” outlines a means for returning to a decentralized, equality-driven existence – using the prevailing central-capital structures.
According to Hayek, efficiency is the result of informed decision-making. Why do we leave the decision-making privilege to a select few at the top? They have no conceivable capacity for capturing all the knowledge in a community or organization. A decentralized decision-making unit is far more reactive and informed when compared to a top-down model. Further, the decision-makers in a decentralized network are more empowered by the mobility and autonomy that comes with being a decision-maker.
