Over the years I’ve learned that understanding structure is crucial for unraveling the organization of anything—be it our bodies, city streets, or companies.

Structure serves as the backbone supporting every system.

I’ve come to appreciate that structures can be diverse in nature, stemming from basic patterns such as symmetrical, asymmetrical, radial, linear, clustered, centralized, or even a mix of these.

Why should we care about this?

I’ve found that identifying patterns within systems reveals the supporting structure, which in turn enables swift problem-solving.

For instance, unlike a linear decision-making process with a clear chain of command, a decentralized organization encourages collaboration and flexibility through its diverse connections.

By visualizing connections and relationships, I’ve gained clarity on where to act for change, allowing me to make more informed decisions and drive progress.
