The book The Starfish and the Spider, by Brafman and Beckstrom, is awesome. It is a serious look at decentralized organizations versus centralized ones. It is a compelling message that needs to be heard today by everyone. I am, of course, in the spiritual world of the church, and to be honest, we should be leading the way in a decentralized movement.
These two authors articulate well, with many profound examples, how powerful we can be if we choose to decentralize rather than keep everything organized around a CEO/Board of directors/Pastor.
For those who are invested in God's kingdom, you must read this book. We should all be connected to the Head, that is Jesus, and He shouldbe leading a decentralized movement to the ends of the earth, but often we control what we have no business taking responsibility for.
