The most successful species adapt to change, and the same is true in business.
Today's volatile and uncertain world threatens to overwhelm us with complexity and disruption. Global companies need a better way to sense and respond to change. TEEMING explores the organizing strategies that Earth's most ancient and successful societies use – ants and termites, honeybees, and vast fungal networks underground.
What can we learn from nature's high-performance teams?
These individuals use a few simple strategies to pool their diverse and independent contributions, creating rich hotspots of abundance that compound in value from one generation to the next. Companies can do it too, using TEEMING's simple, practical steps.
An entertaining and accessible read with profound implications for the future, Teeming takes us on a journey into nature’s most ancient and successful R&D labs, discovering practical prescriptions for redesigning organizations to flourish. Evolutionary biologist Woolley-Barker weaves poetic vision and deep scientific expertise to illustrate how flat, agile, and adaptive societies like ants, termites, and underground fungal networks self-organize for resilience, productivity, and partnership, while generating innovation, engagement, and sustainability. We can do it too.
