Self-organization, self-directedness and self-regulation will be key for organisations working in the emerging network economy. This session will look at the future work through a set of in-depth case studies that demonstrate the potential for small and medium sized companies to experiment and succeed with new organisational designs.

It will show how these companies have succeeded in creating viable collaboration models and how this can lead to the development of collaborative intelligence within businesses. Through a simple dynamic formula, it will demonstrate why this is a critical consideration for companies in the 21st century.
