Recorded January 31, 2006
Quintus Jett, a visiting professor at the Thayer School of Engineering, teaches organizational management, a relatively new discipline within the field. Currently, Jett is working to design a new, more flexible way of organizing groups of people, a method inspired by the success of open-source programming. In this podcast, he talks about his organizing experience and current attempts to use one hurricane-devastated neighborhood in New Orleans as a test case.
