In our earlier webinar, we explored the role and influence of bureaucracy. For all of its foibles and faults, it has been a remarkably persistent form of organizing. And, arguably, a useful one. But not without its (numerous) faults. Paraphrasing Winston Churchill, bureaucracy could be described as “the worst form of organizing, except for all the others.”
But is it? What are all of the others? Where have they come from, why did they come in to being and what are their virtues (and, to be complete and inclusive, what are their sins)?
While bureaucracy has a long, sturdy and relatively intractable reputation, how we organize and how we function in groups continues to be an area of exploration, innovation and creativity.
In this webinar, Mark Mullaly explores the alternatives that exist, that have been explored and that are emerging in how organizations form and how they operate. He explores where different models have come from and why, how they have been implemented and the experiences that have been realized—positive and negative. He’ll examine why the way that we organize continues to be important, and what is most needed if we are going to find a model that ultimately delivers value.
If you work in organizations, influence organizations or are just looking for better forms of organizing, this is the webinar for you.
This webinar series is a de Jager & Co and Interthink Consulting production.
