Note: This book has been obsoleted by: Principle-based Organizational Structure (also by Dean Meyer).
An organization chart can make or break people's performance. In fact, organizational structure is one of the most powerful tools of leadership.
But because of its complexity, it's all too easy to make mistakes, solving some problems while creating others. And when a new structure is announced, the results are often frustrating. Staff endure the chaos, and then return to their old patterns of work. A few years later, the painful process is repeated.
There is a better way....
This book concisely describes the science of organizational structure.
With it, you can diagnose the problems with your current organization chart; design an optimal structure; define flexible, dynamic processes of cross-boundary teamwork; and plan an implementation process that's participative and brings about meaningful change.
Founded on the fundamentals of human nature and systems science, the Building Blocks Approach is applicable to every industry -- corporate, not-for-profit, or government -- and to any functional area.
This is breakthrough thinking, concisely described in an easy-to-read style. It's a must read for every executive who's concerned about the performance of his or her organization.
