The Need for Decentralizaiton

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 28, 2007

Spencer Overton argues against the need for Black leadership in the blog blackprof.com:

a Black “leader” may be the last thing we need.

I just read The Starfish and the Spider: The Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organizations, by Ori Brafman and Rod A. Beckstrom. The premise of the book is that there are limitations to centralized, coercive, hierarchical organizations headed by a single leader. Decentralized, open groups are often more effective. The title contrasts a spider (chop off its head and it dies) with a starfish (chop it up and it multiplies into several starfish).
