A bit more detail

Clark Quinn

In the Coherent Organization model that we (the ITA ) came up with, it talks about how work teams are fed by and feed up to communities as they too feed up to and are fed from social networks.

I’d expect to see more performance support, easily accessible via user-centric portals and search and delivered when and where needed. Employees would be tightly coupled to their work teams, and more loosely coupled to their communities of practice. Teams would be diverse and flexible, and group work would be the norm.
