Michel Bauwens founder of the Foundation for Peer-to-Peer Alternatives has just selected Bioteams as the P2P Foundation Book of the Week.
BBC News reports on work by a team of Swedish researchers from the Karolinska Institute and Stockholm University which shows that "inconsiderate bosses not only make work stressful, they may also increase the risk of heart disease for their employees."
I explained previously how to spot if a team or community or network was a bioteam - a team with a life of its own, where well-established models of team simply do not work. Here is a simple 10 question Group Bioscore Calculator - the higher the "bioscore" the more the group need bioteams!
I would just like to thank the many people who expressed their interest so enthusiastically in The Bioteams Practitioners Network and to let everyone know I have their contact details and will arrange a time to talk before the planned launch in the New Year. Also if you missed it here is the link to the original post. Best Regards Ken Thompson
Michel Bauwens is founder of the Foundation for Peer-to-Peer Alternatives which explores "peer production, governance, and property" and resonates in many ways with Bioteams. Michel addresses his most frequently asked question "So what is P2P anyway?"
I am the team! It might sound like heresy but sometimes the most effective way to produce something is not through collaboration but by just doing it yourself.
As a result of many requests I am pleased to announce the formation of a Bioteams Practitioners Network. I am seeking Expressions of Interest from potential network Founder Members.
Since publishing the Bioteams book it has become very clear that there are a small number of defining characteristics of a bioteam. For best results you should ensure that bioteams is right for your particular team / group / community challenge. Here is how to check!
