Harnessing Emergence to Create Alignment

By Peter Stevens, Personal Agility Institute

You can align people in your organization to achieve greater goals. The keys are shared purpose and emergence. Shared purpose forms the basis for alignment. Emergence can hold the endeavor together. Emergence describes how individual things come together to make something bigger than themselves. Individual molecules of hydrogen and oxygen interact to create water. Individual people interact with each other to form a team. Individual customers and suppliers interact to form an ecosystem. Individuals and interactions are also the first value of the Agile Manifesto. Emergence appears to be a fundamental principle of the universe.
