Not far into the future, we will see as well as manage organizations very differently. Today, we rely on two-dimensional, static (and notoriously outdated) organization charts to depict what a company is or does. Soon, however, we will be able to represent organizations the way they really are: active, in motion, growing, shrinking, reacting to stimuli, flowing in the direction of opportunities and pulsating with life. In the foreseeable future, the org chart is likely to be a visual representation-a movie-that enhances decision making.
