Companies Vs. Tribes


Let’s compare for a moment. You can compare in terms of pretty much anything: efficiency, effectiveness, happiness…

Some brief examples:


C: Spread from the top down
T: Spread from anywhere to everywhere, via the centre


C: Recruit from the top, hiring below
T: Recruit from anywhere, hiring everywhere


C: Creation from the bottom, managed from the top
T: Creation from everywhere, no management needed


C: Everyone spends their time inside the company’s expensive box, developing ideas with others from the same company
T: Everyone works from anywhere, developing ideas with a diverse range of people they like to spend time with

I know which one I’d rather join, or start.
