A modern organization works in an increasingly complicated, dynamic, and competitive environment. Survival and effective development of the organization in such environment can be achieved by complex adaptive leadership. The complexity of the required adaptive changes in the organization causes the need for realizing leadership through collaboration.
An approach to building a collaborative work system (CWS) for complex adaptive leadership is suggested. CWS is represented by a set of interdependent teams interacting dynamically.
The approach consists of creating favorable climate of adaptive collaboration (AC), forming an adaptive collaborative environment, and organizing effective collaborative interactions.
Defined principles of AC provide a favorable climate for such collaboration and set up a framework of collaborative culture for complex adaptive leadership.
The collaborative environment is formed by integration of an organizational environment and a work environment. The organizational environment is a dynamic team-based structure of an organization.
The work environment is a structure of the changes. Structural complexity of every change is determined as a result ordering the structure of changes according to the ordinal function. It allows finding a substructure of priority-driven changes. Every change is conducted by performing suitable interrelated tasks. A structure of tasks corresponding to a set of the changes represents work environment on the tasks level. Adaptability of the collaborative environment is expressed by adjusting an organizational structure and a structure of tasks to dynamics of changes.
Organizing effective collaborative interactions is realized based on the conditions of formation of teams and the order of allocation of members of teams for performance of tasks. Effectiveness of built CWS is evaluated by the introduced coefficient of effectiveness which can serve as a measure of quality of conducting changes.
