Team Goal is based on the benefits of the small group size, averaging around 5-7 people, and the scalability of a fractal design. The solution is a dynamic fractal organization (DFO) created by dividing the whole group of users into smaller subgroups of five people each. The individual groups can be composed of variables such as, physical distance, gender, friendship, work responsibility, or other relations. This will be automatically created by the Team Goal platform based on client configuration.
Each group will discuss the issues at hand on a private team goal board. The team members will continuously rate the information and propositions made by their team members. This material will then be used to create a common summary that will hold the top ideas, propositions, or other information that can be useful for the larger group. We call this a team summary.
To cooperate between groups a representative from each group is selected, based on voting within the group or automatically selected based on the total rating from the other team members. Together with representatives from four other groups, they will automatically create a new team of five people, keeping the optimal group size but now connecting five groups with a total of 25 users.
The newly created team will have access to all the discussions and summaries of all the sub-groups conveniently organized by their ratings. It will also have access to the individual team members of all other groups to be called on with follow-up questions to clarify and deepen the propositions made. The process will then continue in the same way as in the first group and will once again be compiled into a new summary and a new representative will be chosen.
The fractal nature of this will be fully scalable into very large sizes while still remaining the same process flow and intimate team size. Using group sizes of 5 people the first layer will connect 25 users, the second 125, users, the third, 625 users, and subsequently 3125, 15 625, 78 125, 390 625 users, and so on. A business or organization with up to 15 625 users can in this way be fully connected and share a common summary with only six layers. That means that no person will need to be part of more than six groups. In real day-to-day business, this will radically increase the connectivity and participation in the organization while decreasing the total amount of meetings drastically. This has the potential of increasing efficiency and collaboration in a way that is hard to imagine.
