We know that per capita innovation and productivity explode when a city grows in size, but when companies grow, productivity and innovation per employee go down. What’s the difference? Biomimicry (the art and science of innovation inspired by nature) can help us figure it out, because nature’s teams scale even better than cities do. Ant colonies and honeybee hives survived and thrived for millions of years––what can they teach us about working together at scale? They show us how to grow organizations where innovation, agility, and engagement flourish. They dispense with the bureaucracy and control that crushes today’s workplaces.
