About this title


"While my work involves helping executives improve themselves, their people and their teams-this book can help them develop their entire organizations to achieve positive, lasting change, and so that every individual in the company can make his or her maximum contribution!" Marshall Goldsmith Marshall Goldsmith is a noted executive coach and author of What Got You Here Won't Get You There - a New York Times best seller and Wall Street Journal #1 business book --Marshall Goldsmith

"The work of Elliott Jaques and his colleagues is as much a study of the human condition as it is a model for management application in the business world. There are no short cuts in the quest for the design and application of effective management systems in today's competitive world. Understanding levels of work, individual capability and the potential for properly designed and applied management systems is the key to delivering exceptional results. The recognition that people are not simply the most important resource in the business, they are the business, will open up a whole range of new possibilities to management in all fields of endeavor. "I commend the GO Society for taking on this challenge and for its dedication to making this work accessible to a new generation of business leadership. As the torch is passed to a new generation of leaders, the light that shines forward is a lot brighter as a consequence of their work." Mark Cutifani Chief Operating Officer CVRD Inco --Mark Cutifani

"I was introduced to requisite organization by Elliott Jaques when we met in 1979. His concepts underpinned the consultancy work that many of us at the Brunel Institute of Organizational and Social Studies (BIOSS) undertook at that time. "Much of my own consultancy work then and since took place within the UK National Health Service (NHS). I was privileged to be invited to assist from the lowest to the highest levels in the system, and in a variety of geographical areas, during more than a quarter of a century. The NHS is one of the largest and most complex organizations in the world not just in terms of budget size, diverse facilities, and numbers of staff, but also inthe variety of its professions disciplines and functions, and in its political significance. "Although many approaches and concepts are required for any lengthy transformational project, the levels-of-work framework was always essential and invaluable to launch an initial strategy to improve the organizational structure and boost morale. One crucial result was to attract and empower the best people, from inside and from the job market, and so launch a virtuous cycle which generated further improvements of all sorts. "The worth of the core ideas is demonstrated in the way they have been spread by leaders around the world. Due to the efforts of the editors and contributors, I expect that this excellent and comprehensive book will help disseminate the ideas even further so creating benefits for more people, organizations and societies." Dr. Warren Kinston Founder, The SIGMA Centre Ltd. SIGMA is an acronym for Systematizing Imagination Goals Management & Action. --Dr. Warren Kinston
