Isomorphies: Some of them can literally be seen in a boiling liquid

When a liquid with high viscosity (e.g.paraffin) is heated a characteristic structure (Bénard-cells) will emerge. In this process several isomorphies (=interaction- and development-priciples in natural systems) can literally be seen. They can be used for the improvement of the effectivity / efficiency / performance of human systems like teams or organisations and provide reasons for OO / lightweight methods in the software-production:

  Isomorphies Comments Organisation Methods of Software-production
  People (Flow) Team Concepts FlowTeam-Compound
1 Movement from Braunien to visiblemovement enable movement project linkages event-driven
2 Bubbles,emergies Convection streams creation-space (design) for up-coming topics focus on Emergies (Playgrounds for meetings) focus onuseful parts (emerging)
3 Whirls,tropy-drifts Cooperation through resonance Yes and…, take over, develop,(prototyping) Task-force principle take over, combine, re-use
4 TransFORMation through self-organisation, (no planning committee) CoCreate a real thing (flipchart)   from patterns to components
5 Decentralisation semi-autonomous entities Small groups work in parallel FlowTeam-meeting concepts decentralised design
6 Interactiveautonomy (-differentiation) Entities maintain their 'identity'. They developed and can 'cure' themselves conscious use of systemics short-term talent- (genious) contracting OO,message-driven
7 Intensive interaction amongst these semi-autonomous entities fusion tools increase of com-plexity (open / focus / open etc) variable pair-programming
8 In / out, stability through fluctuation Model: Semi-permeable cell membrane System borders (in / out-tools) Speed-integration of new concepts / people encapsulation CRC
9 Simultaneous welfare of parts and the whole Through autonomy and interaction the entities maintrain the structure FlowEnergy-exploitation 90° shift presentation-quality useful, functional pilots
10 Novelty confirmation Natural systems are 'inter-ested' in success only integrative presentation integrative concept-selling write test in advance
11 Attractors Defining the possible stable dynamics attractor sniffing Description of desired outcome for several target-groups Incremental plan-ning approach in eXtreme progr. (planning game)
12 Development has a directionality Towards higher complexity increase of en/tropy production Overview    
Some Other isomorphies / success models in natural systems:
13 The only commitment-model in nature: Mother and her baby Entities in which the same chromosomes are perceivable Develop their own concepts (of coopertion) Make sure the partners have their 'chromosomes' in the concepts Co-develop service-packages with business
14 Development through differentiation of interactive diversities Model: Cell-differentiation in embryo development Talent-Profile-combination/ development
