Introduction Blockchain Organizing

We know the concept of ‘the blockchain’, especially in relation to the bitcoin and blockchain technology. Blockchain organization is broader and looks especially to the use of blockchain technology to allow a friction less flow of added value from supply to demand. Blockchain organizing is not technically, it uses technology. You do not have to know how a combustion engine works to drive a car. Blockchain organization is about the impact on your organization, your function and added value in your ecosystem. It is similar to the question of ‘What is the impact of the Internet on your organization?’ Blockchain organizing will lead to the redundant of several functions and organizations that intermediate between supply and demand.

People of a certain age will probably remember an important question from the mid-nineties: ‘Should our organization have a website and use the Internet?’ We can hardly imagine this question now. But the coming years your organization will have to answer a similar question: ‘Should our organizations go on the blockchain? To answer this question it is important to understand what blockchain organizing is and what the implications are for your organization and function.

More and more experts expect that the blockchain will have a similar development as the Internet and the World Wide Web, 25 years ago. What email was for post offices is the blockchain for many intermediary functions such as management, HR, sales, legal and finance.
