In this post, I suggest considering the term “self-organizing nation” (as “self-organizing teams” in the IT industry.) Can it be one of the success criteria for a country? How “self-organizing” are we and our countries today? Are we prepared to respond to any crisis proactively, like the Ukrainians?
During my managerial training in Berlin (a long time ago) I was impressed by one of the formulations, “Fit for Partnership with Germany.” The keyword was “fit.” In other words, in order to do business with this European country, I had to “fit” certain criteria, meet their requirements, and comply with specific norms and principles. I had to understand their business culture in order to “fit.”
