Most people are proud of their roots.   Where we have come from has a big influence on where we are going, and where we hope to end up.  When we think about that future, most people would love to be able to predict just where we will end up, and how we will fit in when we get there.

We had an interesting experience last week.  We attended an exploratory conference call between CHREATE, a voluntary association formed by a group of HR professionals and focused on the future of HR in the workplace, and the Talent Platform Association, a recently created federation of talent platform technology providers focused on the "free agent" economy of freelancers, virtual teams, and virtual organizations.

In past blogs we have explored the "how tos" and evolving approaches towards the process of organizational design.  In this fourth blog of a five part series on innovative and emerging alternatives for the organization of the workplace, organizational design expert David Creelman explores the online talent platforms being created around the world to leverage a global pool of skilled workers. 

Which company is bigger: the famous advertising giant WPP with 180,000 employees, or the little known talent platform Tongal with 48 employees? At the moment, WPP is bigger....but the difference isn't as great as you might think. If you ask Tongal to make a commercial for you, they don't rely on their 48 employees; they rely on their talent community of 70,000 free agent professionals.

FRACTURING your organizational design: THE FISSURED WORKPLACE

In past blogs we have explored the "how tos" and evolving approaches towards the process of organizational design.  In this first blog of a five part series on innovative and emerging alternatives for the organization of the workplace, organizational design expert David Creelman explores the fissured organization. 

When you walk into a brand-name hotel, who are the people behind the counter? You probably think they are hotel employees; after all, they are wearing that brand on their uniforms. However, chances are they are not that brand's employees; they probably work for an intermediate firm like White Lodging, which runs hotel operations for famous chains like Marriott and Hilton. If you walk out of one hotel to a competitor across the street, you might well find that the workers at the new hotel are also White Lodging employees.

"Two monks were arguing about the temple flag waving in the wind.  One said, "The flag moves."  The other said, "The wind moves." They argued back and forth but could not agree.  The Sixth Ancestor said, "Gentlemen! It is not the wind that moves; it is not the flag that moves; it is your mind that moves."
