HBR Blog Network contributor, Dave Aron, VP and Fellow in the Gartner CIO Research group, writes about “clusters,” a new kind of team that, thanks to technologies like the cloud and new collaboration tools, manage themselves and develop their own way of working. Mr. Aron states that mini solos and retaining loyalty are two risks associated with this type of model.

Clusters offer four main benefits:

Higher levels of business performance through higher motivation.

Higher levels of business performance through a custom work environment.

Talent management in the right place.

Higher levels of personal happiness.
