Interesting thoughts on organization and knowledge from Tim Kastelle. Note the anecdote about Daniel McCallum managing the New York & Erie Railroad and adopting decentralized management techniques that many associate with Toyota and Deming some hundred-plus years later.
Thanks for the ping and for finding this, Andrea Learned.

Excellent, thought-provoking piece by Tim Kastelle
“There is strong evidence to suggest that the information-driven turbulence that we are experiencing now is here to stay. In the social era, we need to: flatten our organisations, build more inclusive and distributed decision-making processes, and reimagine our organisations as idea-processing machines.”
