I’ve been a strong proponent of self-organisation and autonomy on all levels of an organisation. As the argument goes, it improves an organisation’s outcomes and creates a more humane workplace at the same time. However, during the pandemic, we see people relying more on centralised power of governments and willing to give up their individual autonomy. Similar dynamics can be noticed in the business world.

Does the role of self-organisation and autonomy change in times of crisis? Are these the tools that work great only in one specific context, which is business as usual? Is the analogy of people electing different leaders for peace and wartime relevant in this context?

We’ll answer these questions and explore the role of self-organisation and autonomy in organisations facing high unpredictability. Interestingly enough, it will also help us understand how and when self-organisation works when the business actually is as usual.
