VMN Organisation 4.0: SWARM Organisation
The organisation of the future is built-to-adapt rather than built-to-last. They have no formal structure but the form of a self-organising decentralized network, like natural swarms.

About the Event
"Resilience to change isn't equal to being future proof. It's just a response. The ultimate goal is to create organisations that thrive on uncertainty"
Our society is changing at a rapid pace. Traditional organisational models cannot cope with this and this is causing problems. Much of this is attributed to so-called Disruptive Digital Technologies. But is this actually true, or should we look for the cause in ourselves? In addition, the question arises whether our current organisational models are still useful at all. Or will they actually get in our way in the future?
The organisation of the future is built-to-adapt rather than built-to-last. They have no formal structure but the form of a self-organising network, like natural swarms. They use distributed leadership and collective intelligence to make decisions in the here and now to achieve common goals. This makes swarm organisations extremely agile; they thrive in a rapidly changing environment.
How can we use the principles of natural swarming in human organisations?
What mind-set do we need for this?
What structure can we use?
And how will Digital-AI Technology help us do this?
