How can large, diverse groups work together harmoniously and productively? Perhaps we could take what the bees do so well and apply it to our institutions." When Michael O'Malley first took up beekeeping, he thought it would be a nice hobby to share with his ten-year-old son. But as he started to observe these industrious insects, he noticed that they do a lot more than just make honey. Bees not only work together to achieve a common goal but, in the process, create a highly coordinated, efficient, and remarkably productive organization. The hive behaved like a miniature but incredibly successful business. O'Malley also realized that bees can actually teach managers a lot about how to run their organizations. He identified twenty-five powerful insights, such as: ● Distribute authority: the queen bee delegates relentlessly, and worker bees make daily decisions based on local cues and requirements. ● Keep it simple: bees exchange only relevant information, operate under clear standards, and use straightforward measures and feedback to guide their actions. ● Protect the future: when a lucrative vein of nectar is discovered, the entire colony doesn't rush off to mine it, no matter how enriching the short- term benefits. Blending practical advice with interesting facts about the hive, The Wisdom of Bees is a useful and entertaining guide for any manager looking to get the most out of his or her organization. Almost every analogy under the sun has been used to promote and explain old and new rules of business, from animals to famous historical personages. Yale University editor, social psychologist, and beekeeper O’Malley parlays all of his competencies into an examination of bee behavior and its application to the world of commerce. Social psychologist (and avid beekeeper) O'Malley draws management guidance from the hive in this charming rundown of best business practices. It turns out bees work on the same kinds of problems we are trying to solve in our organizations, including the best strategies for ➽ managing short-term vs. long-term gains, ➽ stability vs. flexibility, ➽ individuality vs. community, and ➽ similarity vs. change. O'Malley applies lessons learned from those clever bees to strategies to help organizations survive and grow while wasting as little energy and resources as possible, to expand exploration during low-growth periods, to maintain durability over the long run, to keep energy levels up, to provide ongoing feedback, to avoid overengineering, to discover and use an individual's specialized talents, and to be objective and data driven. The advice itself is your standard management-lesson fare, but presented in a concise, conversational format with great personality, practicality, and verve. Much research informs his 25 lessons of bee-dom. One lesson––“promote community, sanction self-interest”––compares the unity of the hive, where all members, in some way, serve the queen bee is a good rule for the c-suite to remember. Every lesson follows a similar pattern: first, discuss a particular concept of the aviary, then compare it to the for-profit universe, then extract the “shoulds.” Do leaders really need two dozen more principles? Instead, take to heart his four conclusions about the ways honey bees balance: short- versus long-term gains; stability versus flexibility; individuality versus community; similarity versus change. Michael O'Malley, Ph.D., is a social psychologist and management consultant who has coached some of the world's largest companies. He is currently the executive editor for business, economics, and law at Yale University Press and an adjunct professor at Columbia Business School. He has been an avid beekeeper since 2002. He lives in New Haven, Connecticut.
