- Decentralized Organization
Definition of "Decentralized Organization"
- An organization that has no centralized leadership, but instead uses a combination of formal democratic voting processes and stigmergic self-organization as its primary operating principles. A less impressive but sometimes confused concept is a “geographically distributed organization,” which is an organization of people who work far apart from each other and which may even have no office at all. GDOs can still have formal centralized leadership.
