Redundant Hierarchies

Of all questions I get, this is my favourite : "Could we use thingamy to change the organisation?"

To which I enthusiastically answer: "But of course, thingamy can even replace the organisational hierarchy!"

The organisational hierarchy’s purpose is to organise the processes, the work flows and distribute work orders one way and reports the other.

In other words, implement a structured use of resources, i.e. deliver the Business Model.

That is what the thingamy is designed to do: Organise the processes, design and deliver the Business Model, create value in short.

Thus it requires no organisational hierarchy.

That’s why my business card has this precise Hugh drawing:

With "avoid the whole blasted thing" on the flip side 🙂
