I’m still amazed when I look at my own company. Although the pandemic forced our decentralization, we have the kind of culture that allows our employees to learn and understand what they need to do and we trust them to make the right decision. They quickly built a new set of processes, and we continued to make steady progress.
Done well, decentralization is a much more resilient, reliable and scalable system than a centralized system. Whether it’s at a country, community, major corporation or small business level, decentralization is coming. Those that prepare for and embrace it will be the winners in this next decade.
