People cluster together. We form groups for economic and social reasons.What if we could use our natural tendency for social clustering as a way to drive teams?
What if we could create conditions that would attract “the right people”? What if those “right people” would “trust” all other member in the group, just because they were attracted by the same social needs?
If you fill a sink with water and when it’s full you pull the plug, all the water will spiral towards one point. Automatically. Just because the proper conditions are created.
Humans form clusters. Work for example seems to be located around certain topological centers like a harbor, a place rich of natural resources or just cities. Work is not spread out evenly over the planet. There are concentrations of it. The same goes for the other current, that of talent moving around, as described by Richard Florida in “The Flight of the Creative Class: The New Global Competition for Talent”. The most incredible, creative talent is looking for great places to live. Places where tolerant stimulating locations provide company of like minded people. By creating the conditions of technology, tolerance and already available talent, other talent is automatically attracted. Both currents have as a net effect that people are clustering, one gets clusters because people have the need to satisfy their economic needs. opinions
