The Decline of Hierarchies from Sun's CEO

Jonathon Swartz points to this summary  and copy of the the latest column (via Robert Paterson) from David Kirkpatrick which captures some of the panel interaction from from Fortune's Brainstorm Conference.

Technology enables a reduction in transaction costs. It's changing the way people collaborate across companies and across continents. In the past what corporations did internally were those things that had higher transaction costs than doing it externally. Now that dynamic has changed. And to follow that one more step, over the next few years it is going to be really critical for a corporation to understand what it is. What does a company need to be doing itself? Now its transaction costs have come down, so the ability to collaborate across regions and across continents has increased.
