To be honest, I’m a little bit astonished that nobody ever mentions that nested circles are just…

Hi Dien Kwik & Manuel Meyer, I see your points. And obviously I’ve too often stumbled upon people emphasizing all this nested-circle-stuff, while omitting of the details you provided.

The main point seems to be the introduction of additional dynamics through roles which are loosely coupled to a person. If they were coupled tightly to a person, a bunch of roles would form a traditional job description.

Isn’t there an inherent risk, that instead of a hierarchy of positions, you end up with a hierarchy of roles? That would just raise the complexity of the overall system, since there are — I assume—much more roles than positions. Therefore the number of (required) interactions within the system raises exponentially.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
