Like many other ideas, HYVES takes its inspiration from nature, in this case the beehive. A single beehive can consist of up to 60,000 individuals, all organized as a team of teams. The teams work together with maximum independence and minimum need for coordination or interaction.
Has it ever occurred to you that every bee in a hive is a worker? In a bee colony, there isn’t a single supervisor, manager or executive type of bee. No single bee has authority over the other, and even the queen bee works every day of her life.
A fact unknown to most people is that a significant part of the world food production relies on pollination by bees, or in other words, our way of life depends partially on the existence of a single species. Just like bees play a crucial role in our food chain, so is our capability to run projects is of vital importance to humankind.
Today, projects are mostly perceived as instruments to develop new products, improve company performance and economic growth. The importance of project capability has grown beyond the ability to create competitive advantage; it is a key to our existence.
Our population has increased by six billion the last 150 years, and we need to adapt our way of life to accommodate an ever-increasing population on a planet with steadily scarcer resources.
Projects are the vehicles of change. Through projects, we must develop new capabilities that will enable us to adapt to a rapidly changing planet and secure a future for next generations.
