The collaboration cube is an organizational model that supports multidimensional life. The model puts the individual human being in the driver seat of its own life and at the same time at the co-pilot seat of the evolution of life as a whole. In the middle, where these two perspectives on life meet, the individual human being works at the production of the collective creation.
De collaboration cube replaces the old 3-layered pyramid model. This model does not support multi-dimensional life. It does not
support the life of the individual human being and it does not support the
evolution of life as a whole.
The pyramid model only supports the production of the collective creation through cooperation.
fig. Old 3-layered organizational model: The Pyramid Model
The pyramid model is developed to support the creation of the
collective life, the community. The model ensures that the work that
has to be done within a community, is being done. This model is a
result of the idea that a group has more chance to survive
than an individual, in a world full of danger, a world you don't
The pyramid model supports Surviving as a group.
The collaboration cube is in fact an extanded version of the pyramid model.
The pyramid model, that only looks at the collective life from the perspective of the community, is extanded with the perspective of the individual and with the perspective of life as a whole. Subsequently, these three perspective are connected with one another in such a way that a harmonious and balanced community can be created.
The collaboration cube places the community in the midst of Life.
