AsOne - Archetypes

Posted on by Brandon Klein

Our research has uncovered eight distinct models of As One behavior which can be represented around two axes. The vertical axis represents direction-setting and describes how power is exercised: top-down versus bottom-up. The horizontal axis conveys the nature of individuals’ tasks and how work is organized: highly scripted to highly creative. Four clusters of cases sit at the end points of the axes and four more hybrid clusters sit between pairs of end points. These eight clusters are defined as “archetypes” and represent eight different ways of working as one.
