Smallism is the application of distributed political theory, based on our understanding of the early European social evolution that operated for around a thousand years, before the Roman invasion brought centralized command and control structures.
Smallism finds surprising parallels between modern technology and the pre-Roman societies of Europe, and deals effectively with many of the dualities presented by complex modern lives and the human condition.
Many of the concepts and ideas will seem familiar to those with knowledge of the process-based management methodologies already in use around the world, and this is no accident. Smallism borrows heavily from ‘Joined-up thinking’ and, as such, its principles are sound, tried and tested.
Smallism addresses the actual causes of the problems we have experienced in our evolution since our rapid advances in science and technology. Smallism applies natural processes in a modern setting and finds the ideas to be complementary.
