Managers can learn a lot from Mother Nature, particularly the animal world.
Consider, for instance, falcons and ants.
The first is a bird of prey who flies at high speed and has a general ability to quickly change direction. According to Wikipedia, as far as falcons go, "the visual acuity of one species has been measured at 2.6 times that of a normal human." They have exceptional sight and typically fly alone.
Basically, we're talking about two very different world views.
The falcon depends on a broad bird's-eye view. It focuses on expanding its line of sight. The drive is to constantly know what's far ahead or down below.
The ant depends on a detail-focused collective process. It doesn't focus on expanding a line of sight, but rather on contracting effort to accomplish something. The drive is to make sure the work gets done right there, right then.
The falcon is a visionary. The ant is a maker.
The second helps to make sure the system works properly.
Alone, falcons and ants look so different. Together, they might make the best teams.
