Life is a broccoli

Everything in life is a broccoli. Take a broccoli, and snap off a piece. The piece of broccoli is a broccoli in itself. Take that piece, and snap off yet another piece. Again, that piece is a broccoli in itself.

In short, broccoli is self-similar. It is fractal. It is a holacracy.

You will find broccolis all over the place.

A portfolio is comprised of products. A product or a system consists of essential parts. Each part consists of subparts, and so on.

An organization consists of units, divisions, departments, groups, teams, squads, individuals. All broccolis within broccolis.

An initiative consists of programs, programs, in turn, consist of projects, projects have milestones, milestones take a couple of sprints to complete, sprints take one or two weeks.

Briljante Programmeurs Netwerk

Sanne Roemen en Daan Kortenbach doen een oproep om een coöp van briljante programmeurs op te zetten. Wat mij betreft breiden ze dat uit naar briljante ontwerpers, designers, architecten en projectleiders. En dan lekker agile aan de slag.

Als we dat nou eens naadloos kunnen samenvoegen met grote bedrijven op dit gebied. Een organisatievorm vinden waarbij beiden elkaar versterken. De groten zijn zeldzaam, veerkrachtig, geworteld en enorm. De eenpitters, tweepitters en gasstellen zijn met velen, klein, wendbaar en innovatief. Hoe kunnen ze elkaar versterken?!

Hey Sanne, Daan, Ik wil meedoen! Gaan we in augsutus om de tafel om dit verder vorm te geven?

Mijn gedicht “Wanneer Dan” vat het geheel samen.
