What Is Self Organizing?

Self-organizing happens when any individual or group…

  • sees an opportunity to make a change or try something out (idea or opportunity isn’t dictated by anyone else)
  • feels like they can initiate action (self-generated idea and action)
  • finds diverse others from a large network to join with them or collaborate (those who work on the project aren’t dictated by anyone else, people self-select to participate)
  • experiments with small actions
  • accesses the (usually small) resources they need to act
  • spends a lot of time paying attention to what is happening, debriefing, learning from the experience, and analyzing what they did — all to enable them to take a better next step
  • shares what is learned with the larger network

How have you experimented with self-organizing in your networks?
