In our current landscape of business, companies are constantly trying to adapt strategies and techniques in order to address the rapid change and new information that is all around us. However, very few companies have looked at how they distribute power throughout their organizations.

The Underground Railroad is a remarkable chapter in American history. It assisted thousands of enslaved people-maybe as many as 100,000-in escaping to freedom under conditions of grave danger. And it did it with no formal leadership, structure, or staff.

As we commemorate Black History Month, it's an especially apt time to look at some of what the Underground Railroad can teach us about bringing people together to accomplish great things.

In my past two articles (part 1 & part 2), I introduced a new organization structure that uses the traditional organization pyramid turned on its side.  This sideways pyramid can be seen as an arrow pointing toward a target with the leader out in front leading the way.  The target or goal that each organization needs to be striving for is long-term sustainability.  To accomplish this lofty goal, a list of infrastructure requirements called the Organization Bill of Rights were explained.  The basic concept behind these requirements is a leader of any organization has an obligation to look out for the best interest of the organization.
