RnDAO Talks Ep.35
DAOs and Their Operating Systems: Observations and Aspirations with Sam Spurlin
Thursday, 25 January 17:00 UTC 1hr
Sam Spurlin, a partner and first employee at The Ready, a consultancy focused on the future of work, has advised numerous organizations over eight years, guiding them towards more effective and people-positive ways of operating. He has extensive experience working with Fortune 500 leaders and led The Ready’s exploration into DAOs from late 2021 to early 2023. Previously, he collaborated with David Allen on the updated edition of "Getting Things Done" and published with Dr. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on the future of work and positive psychology.
During this talk, Sam will delve into the concept that all organizations, whether traditional or decentralized like DAOs, have "operating systems" that define their culture. These systems, comprised of foundational principles and practices, can be intentionally designed. Examining DAOs through the lens of the OS Canvas reveals parallels in the challenges faced by both traditional and decentralized organizations. Additionally, it highlights unique opportunities for DAOs that differ from traditional setups. Understanding these nuances could lead to improvements in DAO functionality.
