Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0749436298, Audio CD)

Despite the huge volume of research work covering organizational design by everyone from management gurus, sociologists and behavioral scientists to management and business journalists, most organizations remain profoundly unhealthy. There are a number of reasons for this: poor organizational design, faulty company strategy, unclear links to strategy, poor company culture and unhappy employees, to name a few. In this groundbreaking title, Brian Dive reveals that the unhealthy features of both large and small organizations, whether private or public, voluntary or cooperative, all stem from the same source, namely the lack of true accountability. Brian Dive illustrates that organizations are unhealthy because they lack transparent decision-making accountability. Based on the author's experience gained from working at Unilever for 31 years and, more recently, working for Tesco for 2 years as a consultant, and covering research in over 50 countries, Brian Dive answers the recurring questions that dog an organization's development: * How Many People Should There Be In The Organization? * How Many Layers Of Hierarchy Are Necessary? * How Can You Effectively Reward Employees? * What Are The Logical Steps Of Professional Development For Employees? * What Career Paths Should Individuals Follow? By following the steps outlined by Brian Dive in the book, healthy organizational management will lead to greater competitiveness, spark innovation and increase employee empowerment. Includes free presentational CD-ROM.
