Based on Elliott Jaques latest research, this is a thorough revision of a book that has established itself as a classic in its field. Jaques has written a practical high-level, how-to book, that applies to all kinds of working organizations - industrial, commercial, service and public. He sets out a totally new way of doing business. Step by step, he builds up the concepts, and then introduces the working procedures to enable CEOs and senior executives, managers, and HR specialists, to develop requisite organization for themselves - in other words, organization which enhances creativity, productive effectiveness, human satisfaction and excellent morale. Requisite Organization challenges all of our current methods and assumptions in the field of organization, leadership and management, and presents a unified total management system built upon a rigorous theoretical base, Stratified Systems Theory. Any enterprise can gain a competitive edge in the short-term by introducing new products and services. In the long-term, however, an adaptive and successful enterprise calls for soundly structured organization with effective staffing and managerial leadership at every level - a requisite organization.
