The definitive guide to bioteams

New bioteaming manifesto published

I am delighted to announce that, in collaboration with my colleague Robin Good, and the very kind support of ChangeThis whose mission is "to spread important ideas and change minds" we are launching "The Bioteaming Manifesto - A new paradigm for virtual, networked business teams".

The 33-page manifesto draws together material from all the key papers and research developed over the last two years on and reflects the very latest thinking on how organisational teams and inter-organisational networks can become more effective by following the principles of nature's best bioteams.

You can read and download a free copy of the complete manifesto by visiting the ChangeThis site by clicking here.

I read the manifesto and enjoyed it quite a bit. I did have a question about Rule #4, however.

I see the value of being able to get a message to someone 24x7, but couldn't this have potential negative impacts on the focus or concentration of that person? Or is the idea more that they have a means to check messages 24x7 from any location but can do so at their leisure? Thanks.


You are right - its the latter - and its an important point. The counter-balance to being available is the right to times of privacy when you can choose not to be available. The receiver has to be able to control or it all becomes totally intrusive. Most presence technologies recognise this
