The Three Structures of an Organization (Org Physics - Explained). Workshop with Niels Pflaeging at ODF 2013 Annual Conference (Denver, CO/USA)

ODF Organization Design Forum

ODF Organization Design Forum Conference Workshop
"The Three Structures of an Organization
Why functions, divisions, org charts, matrix and line organization are unnecessary evils. How to design for complexity. How to re-define leadership and change for this century."

with Niels Pflaeging, Founder, BetaCodex Network
__________

Business, markets and society have changed, but the principles, the methods and concepts of organization design, leadership and performance management haven’t, by and large. Organizations today thus have become grossly ineffective. Because most of us have flawed ideas about what actually makes them tick!
In this session, participants will gain a new understanding about how organizations work through structures. And why every organization has 3 of those. The problem: Hardly anyone in the business world is aware of that - and that's why so much investment into effectiveness and change is misdirected, and simply misses the point.
This session will contrast the wide-spread mechanistic mental models inherited from the industrial age with models derived from complexity sciences and contemporary psychology. It will present a robust alternative to command-and-control, and indeed to management as we know it.
Participants will be introduced to research from the Beyond Budgeting and BetaCodex movements, which include case study research and learnings from diverse sciences that are frequently ignored by academics and practitioners alike.
