Tyranny of the Executive

While listening to an IBM presentation and flipping through the printed slides, I noticed an unintended message in a typical web 2.0 slide that shows the old-fashioned org chart turned upside down to emphasize the peer-to-peer nature of social computing.  Until I saw their version of an org chart in 3D, I never realized how much the executive part of the org chart looks like a giant, evil robot crushing the masses of peons beneath his feet and hands.  With a little doodling, the image became more clear (don’t ask why my robot has horns and fangs – it just does).

Likewise, I never realized how turning the org chart around looked like the executive is struggling hard against the weight of the masses now crushing him and his authority. 

With the addition of a few of my doodle marks, I think the message becomes more clear – or at least more fun.  Enjoy!
