I fucking hate organization charts : peterme.com
"organization charts…are emblematic of how broken standard business practice is. Command-&-control hierarchies are appropriate for Industrial Age mindset that favors control in order to achieve consistency, efficiency, & quantifiability…Departmental silos are no longer practical…

…related to org charts, are job titles…associated w/ set of qualifications & responsibilities, w/ idea that anyone who has that job title can do same activities…interchangeable…any fan knows that [basketball players] w/ same title are far from identical & secret to success is chemistry that emerges from combination of right set of individuals…

If we’re going to get away from bureaucratic thinking that defined Industrial Age, we need to set aside outmoded tools that were created for wholly different needs than what we have now…need to stop assuming that way we were taught is way it always was (& always should be) done, & we need to come up w/ new models & approaches to address our current reality."
