The Bumble Bee is a new addition to the list of blogs I’m reading. It’s about the idea of bioteams a way of applying principles from nature to human teams to make them more effective. Quite a lot of it seems to align closely with the Improv principles I’m keen on. Here’s a snippet from one post:
In an perfectly working bioteam there are no leaders. Everyone contributes to the well being of the team and to achieving the agreed goals.
In a bioteam there are no leaders issuing orders as everyone is broadcasting relevant bits of information just-in-time to all other team members.
Leaders are not needed as there are no rigid permission structures and any team member can take timely action relative the information received. Direct, responsible individual action is supported and facilitated.
