Hierarchies are often the default means of organization for most companies. However, heirarchies are also known to make effective decision making and communication awkward and slow. By their very nature, they foster the growth of silos and barriers between groups. Far too many companies fall into the hierarchy trap. How do we get out of it? What are our alternatives and what can we do to find them? In this session we survey the different kinds of organizational alternatives to hierarchy that we have seen. We compare the pros, cons and relative merits of each. By understanding what the options are, we can better understand what works best for our own organizations. Ultimately, agile organizations should represent a much wider diversity of organizational structures. Come learn how we get there.
