Description

No one can make a promise for you, only you can do that. This simple fact has very-wide-scope implications for scaling organizational change. Promise Theory provide a framework for thinking about decision-making, leadership, teamwork, collaboration, and organizational change at scale.

Promise Theory provides a framework for thinking correctly about designing and scaling enterprise agility. It confirms the inviting approach and Invitation-Based Change as it also provides a clear and accessible algebra of cooperation.

Promise Theory says that an approach for scaling human systems ought to also work well for scaling computer systems, and vice-versa. Now what is interesting about this is the fact that a network of autonomous agents, who independently make and keep promises, is a proven way to scale. Scaling in this way does not decay throughput as additional nodes and agents are added. Promise Theory describes a strategy for achieving linear scalability through scale-free networks. Promise Theory describes the mechanics of cooperation at scale. It confirms the underlying premises of Invitation-Based Change™, Inviting Leadership™ and the Eight Open Patterns of Business Agility™.

Coordinating activity in an uncertain world requires flexible communications between autonomous players. As humans, we wrestle daily with the running of teams, departments and entire global enterprises. Ambiguity abounds. How do we scale cooperation? How do we scale the messy business of continuous improvement? Promise theory provides a coherent answer to some of these questions. It offers a new way to think about scaling organizational change.

  • Leaders who are hands on implementors
