The Orgtology Blog

Welcome to our blog articles on Orgtology, Orgamatics, and Organamics. To post blogs on this site, you must be an Orgtologist or a Orgtology Specialist, or you must be registered on a training programme of the IOI. All blog articles are moderated.

In this category we study the core theories of orgtolgy and we aim to grasp foundational concepts of the International Orgtology Institute.

In these studies, we try to find interdependence in all that happens within Org. Since orgtology is a science, we use scientific method, which means that we must verify and test our findings. In turn our...

In this category we study the core theories of orgtolgy and we aim to grasp foundational concepts of the International Orgtology Institute.

In these studies, we try to find interdependence in all that happens within Org. Since orgtology is a science, we use scientific method, which means that we must verify and test our findings. In turn our findings must be replicable and falsifiable.

To grasp the systematics and dynamics of Org, orgtology presents a core hypothesis that we call “Hypothesis 2x”. Flowing from this hypothesis are eight base theories, four for orgamatics and four for organamics. Jointly these theories create the science of orgtology.

All the theories, models, tools, and concepts of orgtology create a body of knowledge that we term the OBoK (Orgtology Body of Knowledge).

The EOP Analysis – redefining how we understand organisations

EOP Analysis - redefining how we understand Org
EOP is an acronym for Exposure, Opportunities, and Process. It replaces the old SWOT analysis. SWOT means Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. As with SWOT, the EOP aims to help us understand a current reality. Although SWOT is a helpful way to prepare for strategy, it has limitations. I discuss the detail in my post: "EOP vs. SWOT an...

How to write an executive summary for a strategy document

How to write an executive summary
Writing the executive summary of a strategy document is the last and most important thing to do. This is for strategy development of course. When we use an orgamatics model to develop a strategy, it is the same. A strategy document shows that you can articulate your plan in a straightforward way. More than 50% of the people who read your strategy w...

Hypothesis 2x of Inverse Duality

Hypothesis 2x of Inverse Duality
Hypothesis 2x opens the study of orgtology. It creates eight core theories; four for orgamatics and four for organamics. Its indirect claim is that an organisation can only exist through relations and relationships. To relate, entities must interact, which implies a cycle of projecting and receiving. This means that there must be an exchange betwee...

An orgamatics framework for developing strategy

An orgamatics framework for strategy.
The aim of this blog post is to give a framework for developing strategy from an orgamatics perspective. The orgamatics model holds four base theories. An Orgtologist will use these theories as guideline when developing strategy. The table below shows the effect and consequence of each of the four orgamatics theories.  ​ Theory: ​ ​Conclusion:...

Who is the International Orgtology Institute (IOI)?

On 27 April 2018, Derek Hendrikz registered the IOI as a non-profit organisation under Section 21 of the South African Companies Act. In doing so, those who practice orgtology now own it. The reason that Derek set up the IOI was to create a neutral body that will regulate the practice of orgtology™. Through this initiative the world can gain from i...

How to become an Orgtologist

How to become an Orgtology Practitioner...
From an early age, masters of their own trade always intrigued me. To this date I respect people who know what they are doing - be it a plumber, professor, business person, or sports hero. To me that was what success is. For this reason, the day when I could call myself an Orgtologist was a great achievement to me. This was a recogni...

What is Organamics?

Organamics - a study of workplace dynamics.
Humans create workplace dynamics. Organamics studies the effect of that. These dynamics stimulate growth, development, and change, which will influence the performance and relevance of Org. The variables that create dynamics get their meaning from context. These variables are intelligence, paradigm, and identity. Jointly they decide how relevant an...

IOI Quality Standards for Orgamatics Topics

IOI Quality Standards for Orgamatics Topics
The International Orgtology Institute (IOI) regulates the practice of orgtology. To do so, the IOI must set standards that will create a minimum level of quality for orgtology practitioners. In my blog; " What is Orgamatics ?" I explain systematics. It is an area of orgtology where we study the behaviour and movement of organisational systems. The ...

What is Orgamatics?

Orgamatics is a study of workplace systematics
In my post: " What is Orgtology? ", I present orgamatics as a study of workplace systematics. This is a unique approach where we use a theoretical model to grasp Org. The model consists of four theories, which I briefly describe here. Through these theories we can cluster the generic functions of Org within systems. A system is a container for proc...

The Orgtology Body of Knowledge - OBoK

The Orgtology Body of Knowledge
The  O rgtology B ody of K nowledge, or OBoK, has the task to keep and uphold all the theories, systems, dynamics, models, tools, and concepts that we create in orgtology. In so, we base the practice of orgtology entirely on the OBoK. What is Orgamatics? In my post: https://orgtology.org/index.php/2015-06-01-09-45-25/orgtology-b...

What is Orgtology?

The Science of Organisation
During the 90's I was quite a "new gimmick" junkie. I followed the latest "management fads", and it did not take much to make me a loyal disciple of anything new and "sexy". I have been a trainer in the field of management and leadership my whole life. In 2004 I began to consult in the sphere of strategy. I loved the Balanced Scorecard approach and...
