The Flow System shows how to generate and nurture self-organizing teams that mobilize the full talents of those doing the work to cope with dizzying change and complexity, while also drawing on the contributions of those for whom the work is being done—the customers.”—Steve Denning, author of The Age of Agile

“Organizations that pull off this triple helix trick of thinking about the complexity of their systems and the environment in which they’re operating, distributed leadership to engage the collective intelligence and creativity of the organization, and building teams of teams so the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, have a good chance of keeping up and staying ahead.”—Steve Spear, MIT Sloan School senior lecturer, author of The High Velocity Edge

The Flow System’s Triple Helix provides many of the tools and ways of thinking we will need to do that; it is agile without being doctrinaire about Agile.”—David Snowden, creator of the Cynefin Framework, Chief Scientific Officer of Cognitive Edge
