In the US close to 40% of workers are virtual for at least part of the week – new ways of working. And they are knowledge workers – a new kind of work. Both growing demographics call for new ways to engage workers. Dr. Dixon will provide examples of how organizations like Cisco, Adobe, and even some government organizations are finding alternatives to the Bureaucratic model of top down control and formal rules. These organizations are disciplined and empowering, focused and opportunistic, coordinated and decentralized.
