Hi Harold... I was just cleaning up my email backlog and realized that
maybe you have ideas about something I have been thinking about. I have
just read Sutherland's SCRUM which is a fun read in the course of
thinking about organizations that are flatter/non or less hierarchical.
Many of the ones that stand out in the popular mind as innovative,
transparent, and non- hierarchical are that way because the founder had
those values and a vision they implemented from the start. Ex: Zappos,
Eileen Fischer etc 

I have been looking for examples of organizations that began as very
structured etc and have moved toward or from that position to more
egalitarian, transparent etc. When I read about SCRUM I keep thinking of
the need to protect it from the forces that would kill it in more
traditional organizations. In it's heyday, DEC was a revolutionary
organization inside but not built to take what was happening outside it
seriously enough....another an different problem... 

Anyway, if you have thoughts, I would be interested. Hope all is welll
with you. We are about to get another foot or two of snow on top of the
foot we already have so I am at home down on the farm staying warm and
staying put///all the roads are closed anyway. Warm regards. B3
