Group 2: the Workplace

The workplace is the only subgroup of the GF. If the GF is the public square, the workplace is the big tall building in the middle of it where people go to stop talking and get to work. Owners with a work license (workers) are part of the workplace. It's the only group where all workers are together. The main function of the workplace is the realization of the envisioned product or service. It does that by working in teams, the subgroups of the workplace. As a worker, you are always subscribed to one of the teams. For example the design team. To be able to work, you apply for one of the roles in your team, for example: UX designer. Roles are the subgroups of your team. Your team captain decides if you will get access to the group of that role.

The Project Leaders Team (PLT)

Although a Smartup is a decentralized system, it does have a Project Leaders Team (PLT) that functions as the day-to-day operational team during the 4 phases of creation. This team, guides and stimulates the Workplace. They are setting out the overall strategy of the Smartup and are being overseen by all workers. The PLT exists out of all the team captains and the entrepreneur that initiated the Smartup.
