Abstract: The human brain exhibits a series of unique and highly desirable characteristics. It has the ability to grow rapidly during development, to learn, adapt and self-heal after injuries. It is capable of making new discoveries and connecting seemingly disparate thoughts. At the core of these characteristics lies the brain’s ability to self-organize and form new connections, which is described by the term ‘neuroplasticity’. In an age where adaptability, creativity, and connectedness are key success factors for organizations, a new understanding of organizations as living systems may be called for. In this article, we want to introduce the concept of management plasticity that challenges the underlying beliefs that shape traditional organizational structures. In our case study, we illustrate how the principles and practice of management plasticity, like neuroplasticity, allow for development and connectivity, learning and memory, creativity and leadership as well as innovation.
