The theme of the Spring 2012 issue of Synaptein will be Peer Regulation. The absence of supervisors and managers to monitor and correct the activities of employees can sound a lot like anarchy to those accustomed to the traditional method of organizing. We believe, though, that the regulation that happens within a peer network is not only more natural, but also more effective than regulation codified by an org chart.
In this issue, we would like your help in imagining new tools and systems divorced from the traditional management structure that still ensure (and hopefully improve) accountability amongst peers within an organization.
If you have successfully developed and implemented (or researched the development and implementation of) a process that supports accountability through peer regulation in your organization, we’d love to hear the details. What was the situation that caused you to re-evaluate? What was the thought process? How did you make it happen? And what were the results? Looking back, is there anything that you would have done differently?
Or perhaps you’ve got a great idea that’s yet to be proven. Let’s hear it. What problem is it aimed to solve? What roadblocks are preventing you from testing it out?
Due to limited publication space, we ask that if you would like to contribute, you provide a brief written summary of the proposed topic to Amy Wardell via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday, November 21. Please also detail whether your submission is academic in nature (i.e. based on your research), or based on your practical experience or other study. We will then make requests for full articles by Friday, December 2. Please see the timeline above for additional dates.
