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.

The orgtelligence system is the second of the orgamatics systems. In this study we aim to grasp the most effective way to keep an organisation relevant and performing.

To increase its orgtelligence, Org must monitor and evaluate its organisational activity and then process feedback so that it can create new feedback loops that will increase the chances of its future survival.

Areas that resort here are: QQ (quality and quantity) effectiveness; the project construct RPO maturity; strategy; risk management; change management; monitoring and evaluation; EOP analysis; human resource development; performance assessment; internal audit; financial accounting; financial management; policy development; project management; reporting; target setting; etc.

How to do an EOP Analysis

EOP Ananlysis
EOP is an acronym that we use for Exposure, Opportunities, and Process. In my post " The EOP Analysis – redefining how we understand organisations " I explain EOP. It is an understanding of organisational reality. There are quite a few ways to do an EOP analysis. This could range from a conversation to in-depth research. Below are some of the metho...

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...

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:...

The difference between vision and mission – an orgtology perspective

The difference between mission and vision - an orgtology perspective.
In leadership and strategy development, mission and vision are both first and foremost. But what is their difference? Which one is first and how does one conclude them? The difference between vision and mission is a confused and misunderstood concept. In many cases they say the same thing, but in a different word order. Even in fortune 500 companie...

How to create vision through the 5V Model.

How to create vision through the 5V System
Intent creates the future. It is the nothing that turns into something. It is where everything begins. In my post on " The difference between vision and mission " I explain what a vision statement is. Vision creates intent whilst mission defines purpose. Vision is the desired state of Org. Strategic objectives create our plan to reach that state. I...

How to develop a statement of accountability for a process construct

How to develop a statement of accountability for a process construct by Derek Hendrikz
Humans bring a process construct™ to life through a role structure. A role structure has dynamics that a construct does not have. In a structure there is inequality between people, which we create through authority levels, power dynamics, job grading, wage differences, etc. This creates a myriad of dynamics that has little to do with work. I explai...

How to audit a process construct

How to audit a process construct
I would generically define an audit as an official inspection of a process and its outputs, or of a project and its outcomes. We can do this in a variety of ways and with an array of goals. In this post I explain how we do a process construct audit. When we audit operations, we are auditing a process construct. Another term for a "process construct...

The Work of a Process Team

The Work of a Process Team
All my other blog posts on the process construct is about the construct itself. This post is about the people who must manage it. One problem that I often work with, is that many people struggle with the difference between a project team, a process development team, a process implementation team, and a process management team. They are all vastly d...

How to translate operational targets from bottom to top in a process construct

How to translate operational targets from bottom to top in a process construct
In my posts, " Creating targets for a process construct " and " How to engineer a process construct ", I have explained that in orgamatics™, we create a process construct™ from the top down but that we target it from the bottom up. This is because Org™ does its work at the front-end and therefore, the top processes must just accurately summarize th...

Creating targets for a process construct

Creating targets for a process construct - Blog Article
In the words of Peter Drucker: "you can't manage what you can't measure." In my blog article " The difference between a target, an output, and an outcome ", I explain the complexity of targets, and the distinct types of targets. In this post I work with process output targets only. The first question that we must answer when creating a target is ho...

The difference between a target, an output, and an outcome

Targets, outcomes, and outputs
In human life, we measure much of any person's worth by what they achieve, after they have achieved it. In some sense, targets, outputs, and outcomes all do this. Well, then why should we know their difference? What makes matters worse, is that there are as much definitions on each as there are authors who write on the topic. Now, the reality is th...

How to develop system and process briefs

How to develop system and process briefs
In my article " How to engineer a process construct ", I explain that the drawing of a process map is less than 40% of the work. To make a process intelligent it needs data as well as time, cost, and priority. I explain TCP Efficiency™ in another blog post. The aim of this post is to work with the collection of data. The data that a process needs a...

How to engineer a process construct

How to engineer a process construct
I always struggle on whether we design a process or whether we discover it. If we can produce a result, then a process does exist. But, it would be naïve to say that the humans who discover these processes do not add some of their own experiential flair. In my blog post: " What is a process construct? ", I discuss what a process is, and why it...

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 ...
