“The work left for humans to do is nuanced, creative, and collaborative. It requires each of us to maximize our unique strengths rather than conform to a standardized set of skills.” — @rhappe

 

“project selection; does this work align with our culture? does this partner align with our culture? will this project further our culture?” — @gapingvoid

 

“Communities are the structure of belonging.

Community governance creates organizational structures where diversity is a feature, not a bug. Diversity is encouraged, rewarded, and celebrated – in all its variations.

It is the future of work” — @rhappe

 

Working distributedly, which is not the same as working remotely, is all about how we redefine the way we work as we transition into networks and online communities as new operating models. We have all become nodes of a wider, hyperconnected, more complex than ever, giant cluster of networks: The Internet. Yet we keep insisting that’s how we used to work while at the office. No, we weren’t.

Working distributedly means we have new operating models in place where online communities and networks dictate how work gets done. It means we no longer have to exclusively depend on the traditional command and control, top-down hierarchy of (senior) management making decisions for us. Instead, we thrive in informal networks where we have democratised the way information and knowledge are shared across. Where our only means of surviving online is by how much we coordinate, cooperate and collaborate with one another, regardless of the tools we may use in whatever the context we may have been given.

Now, that is how we change the nature of work. That’s how we discover, embrace and adapt to new ways of working by making extensive use of a number of (social) digital tools that allow us to earn the merit of being an integral part of those networks and communities: through building trustworthy personal business relationships while working and learning together. Trying to copycat exactly what happens in an office environment is not how we rethink the role we play when we come to think about work.”@elsua
