Micro Architecture

The micro-architecture of business is something like the molecular structure of the fundamental stuff from which businesses are made. At a micro-architecture level, there is significant apparent commonality and simplicity. The micro-architecture of all business organizations is composed of a structure of conversations, commitments, contracts, and transactions. This apparent simplicity is somewhat misleading, since the properties of the system may be vastly different than the properties of the elemental building blocks. The simple set of four nucleotides of the DNA molecule is a starter program that underlies all the complexity of life.
