Bill Ives: “I have been reading Peter Gloor’s new book, COINS @ Tipping Point — How to Convert Organizations into Collaborative Innovation Networks.” From the book’s introduction: “Team members initially work outside of organizational boundaries, without managerial supervision and employing minimal resources, but delivering stellar results. COINs are defined by three characteristics: 1) they innovate through massive collaborative creativity by swarm intelligence, 2) they collaborate under an implicit but nevertheless strict ethical code, and 3) they communicate as small world networks.” (numbering mine). Looks like an interesting read!
