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.

From the Back Cover:

"Those rampaging against hierarchies today rarely stop to consider that hierarchy as a form of social organization occurs throughout nature. Instead of throwing rocks at hierarchies, it behooves us to try to understand why hierarchy might actually be important and the principles that might guide leaders in distinguishing functional from dysfunctional hierarchy.

"No one has done better thinking on this subject than Elliott Jaques. His Requisite Organization should be required reading for all managers genuinely interested in what-rather than simple tradition, established biases, and pure power politics-might truly JUSTIFY hierarchies capable of serving human and organizational goals."

Peter M. Senge

Center for Organizational Learning

MIT

"A critical application of Dr. Jaques' theories enables today's CEOs to organize their corporations correctly to utilize each employee's God given talents, and to promote and develop employees to their maximum potential unencumbered by bureaucracy, personalities and seniority issues. Dr. Jaques' system, in its eighth year of evolution at Commonwealth Aluminum, has allowed our company to run a system based upon a meritocracy where good performance leads to more opportunity and poor performance leads to removal from role. The employees perceive this as a fair system and the company has achieved significantly improved performance."

Mark Kaminski

President and CEO

Commonwealth Aluminum

"Using Requisite Organization principles in our management system has brought about a clarity of expectations that has been liberating to individuals and immeasurably beneficial to the company."

Dr. W. J. Privott

President and CEO

Novus International, Inc.

"This system is not 'flavour of the month'! It is a comprehensive, integrated, disciplined and rigorous system for all managers, which, when followed, makes such good sense. For any manager faced with the competing demands of running an organization, especially in times of uncertainty and change, the up-front investment of time and effort pays off-it simply makes life easier!"

Karen Robinson

General Manager

Ontario Hydro, Hydroelectric

"The 'magic' in Elliott Jaques' concepts is simply that they work in the field ... I have employed them daily in my work for over 6 years at both the corporate headquarters level of a major global company and, more recently, in its rapidly developing Asia operating region. Whether in 'Peoria' or the People's Republic of China, I wouldn't leave home without Elliott Jaques!"

Tom Helton

Vice President, Human Resources,

Whirlpool Asia

About the Author:

Elliott Jaques' academic posts include Visiting Research Professor in Management Science at The George Washington University and Professor Emeritus of Social Science at Brunel University in England. A trained psychoanalyst, and business organization guru, he has continuously combined work with organizations and with individuals - in industry, commerce, public service, education, the Church of England and the US Army. He is the author of 18 books, including Human Capability with Kathryn Cason, also published by Gower. In The Changing Culture of a Factory (1951), Dr Jaques introduced the concept of business culture and its affect on the work environment. He is recognized for creating the concept of mid-life crisis, in his 1965 scholarly paper, 'Death and the Mid-Life Crisis'.
