This discussion is particularly relevant for organizations and communities aiming to adopt more transparent, collaborative, and efficient operational models.

Amy Jung articulates the journey towards decentralization as a phased approach, emphasizing that a sudden leap to full decentralization can be overwhelming and counterproductive. Instead, she advocates for a measured, step-by-step transition that allows for the gradual empowerment of community members and stakeholders.

Key Takeaways from the Episode:
