Black Sun teams use flocking and scale
During spring in Denmark, just before sunset, flocks of more than a million European Starlings gather from all corners to create an incredible phenomenon known as The Black Sun. The Black Sun principles of flocking and mass collaboration can also be applied to organisational teams.
How to gain advantages in organisational teams and business networks by adapting the principles of flocking and swarming is discussed in Enhance team performance by consistent individual behavior.
The potential benefits of scale in collaboration is discussed in Mass Collaboration and Virtual Crowds.
