Complexity and Structural Change 3

Today’s organization is being trapped within past paradigms that prevent it to be more flexible and dynamic. Recently, in past years organizations have unsuccessfully sought the formulas that would allow them to survive in a competitive environment which is every day more dynamic and disorderly. However, changes have been partial and organizations haven’t been able to adapt the business essence according to the new and incremental environmental demands. In spite of everything, we know the 21st Century organizations should learn to evolve and adapt their structures in this new environment if they want to stay within the competition arena.
The Process-Structure Model will allow us to understand and modify the complex internal organizational dynamics, identifying the structures that generate the spread of dissimilar conducts and events. In the Complexity and Chaos book, the tool of Management Complexity is also presented, an ideal support for those organizations trying to design or redesign structures in order to reach the conducts and learning that would guarantee the adaptation to their environment. The process of organizational change could be accomplished in learning cycles considering the essential structure in order to reach a sustained and healthy growth.

  • Alfonso;
    Saw this referenced in the Organization Change Group on LinkedIn. I really like it! Nice simple explanations of the most complex dynamics behind change. The graphics do a great job of supporting the message. Bravo!
