Episode Description

An ant swarm has a single goal... to find the nearest source of food. Each individual within the swarm responds directly and indirectly to every other individual and coordinates their activity in real time, enabling the group to do whatever is necessary to reach their goal. In such a context, errors and randomness are not "bugs" but opportunities for discovery and exploration. How can this example inspire today's organization to change its mind and create a decentralized, flexible "Enterprise Swarm" (of the whole organization or of individual units) that is robust and self-repairing? ...Where Big Data turns behaviors into powerful insights that streamline collaboration and allow each individual to work autonomously towards the common goal? …One where automation can be increased?
