mutual beneficial cooperation
What is it?
Swarm Organisations are decentralized, networked structures that leverage the collective intelligence, expertise and creativity of their members to achieve common goals. Unlike traditional hierarchical organizations, Swarm Organisations rely on distributed decision-making and self-organisation
to tackle complex problems and make informed decisions
in real-time. This makes them highly agile, adaptable, and capable of quickly responding to changing conditions
Why do we need it now?
Over the last decades, our society has experienced an extreme increase in change, a development that is anticipated to become permanent. Organisations with a traditional, hierarchal structure are not equipped for highly volatile environments. They can’t keep up. As a result many experience an increase in eco-system mismatches and fail to create value for their stakeholders.
How does it work?
The SWARM Organisation model combines human and swarm organisation principles in a best of both worlds solution. Organisations that adopt the Swarm Organisation model, have reconsidered traditional approaches to decision-making and leadership. They provide their employees with insights, resources and support. They also foster a strong sense of community, creating a supportive culture that values open communication and collaboration. They exploit new structures, technologies and processes to facilitate the collaboration.
SWARM has defined 3 focus areas for the transition.
What will it bring ?
"Rapid adaptation to change is the new
Future successful organisations must not be ‘built to last’ but ‘build to adapt’. They will need to move away from structure, hierarchy and control, and embrace the concept of an adaptive self-organising network.

SWARM Organisation is the brain child of Evert Bleijenberg MBA. After many years in sr. management en strategy consultancy, he concluded that our current industrial age organisation models no longer work in the face of extreme changes in our society and that a radical new approach is necessary. As a professional wild life videographer he observed the self-organising behaviour of large animals collectives: SWARMS. From these insights he developed a new organisation narrative that combines the essential properties from both Human and Natural organisation systems. In 2020 he published his book SWARM Organisation and started bringing the new model to the world.
