People: Peter Gloor

In this episode, David and Justin discuss the work of Peter Gloor including his famous work, Swarm Creativity. They have a good time, as always, talking about how this work relates to the metaphor of the body. Here are the notes from the show:

  • Peter Gloor is an accomplished academic, consultant, and author
  • One of his famous contributions was a concept called C.O.I.N.s (Collaborative Innovation Network) from his book Swarm Creativity
  • Examples of C.O.I.N.s are ant colonies as well as open source programming
  • This is the opposite of “command and control”
  • We unpack 6 benefits of C.O.I.N.s in the show
  • Tips for leaders:
    • “I becomes we” – this is the biblical notion of servant leadership
    • Optimize knowledge flows instead of processes – this is the nervous system
    • Give up central control and hierarchy in favor of self organization, common goals, and trust
