Orgtology Q & A

Questions and answers about orgtology
On first acquaintance, orgtology might seem like a new name for old shoes. This is not the case, since orgtology has specific assumptions about organisation. These differ significantly from traditional organisational thinking. Executives who use orgtology as management tool, find it impossible to revert to traditional methods. Below is a podcast in...

Using Orgtology Theory to Create and Sustain Relevant and Performing Innovation-Based Organisations

 Introduction Orgtology is a study of organisation (Org) and the consciousness that constructs it. It is also defined as the science of organisation. (Hendrikz 2020) In developing an understanding of an organisation through Orgtology, one can then come up with solutions to help the organisation exist more optimally in both performance and rele...

Hypothesis 2x – the Foundation of Orgtology

Hypothesis 2x - the Foundation of Orgtology
Hypothesis 2x opens the study of orgtology. It creates its theories and philosophy. Its basic premise is that an Organisation can only exist if activity interacts. In so, an organisation exists through relations and relationships. To relate, entities must interact. Interaction is a cycle of projecting and receiving. When this happens, activity beco...

What is Orgtology?

The difference between an organisation and a system always fascinated me. In the cycle of life there is no leadership or strategy. There is only algorithm. The honeybee pollinates plants that grows from ground, which the dung beetle fertilises by burying decaying matter deep underground. The antelope who eats plants in turn becomes food to a lion. ...

Theory O – The Relevant and Performing Organisation (RPO)

The Relevant and Performing Organisation
Theory O explains a Relevant and Performing Organisation (RPO). It shows how Org must relate intent, resources, and intelligence, to purpose to create an RPO. In Theory O, the "O" stands for organisation or Org. Purpose is a common denominator to organisations who do the same thing. E.g., a bank in Singapore has the same function as a bank in Bangl...

Theory 2I - Understanding Orgtelligence

Theory 2I of Orgtelligence
Orgtelligence is the sum of the systems intelligence and human intellect within Org. This means that organisations have two types of intelligence. The first is implied. This is an algorithm - a set of rules that drives activity, which delivers a predictable output. For humans, breathing is an example. For Org, the flow of work is one. The second is...

The Consciousness of Org

The Consciousness of an Organisation
Consciousness is the level at which an entity is aware. All entities are aware at some level. E.g., a tree will develop a root structure that can accesses water and nutrients with ease. Yet, a tree does not know that it is a tree. This lack of self-awareness will limit its ability to respond. Therefore, all its actions are mere subconscious reactio...

What is Org?

What is an Organisation?
Orgtology is about understanding organisations. It thus makes sense to know what an organisation is. One will agree that you do not create a child when registering it with a Home Affairs department. In so, registering a company does not create Org. Like human life, Org begins in consciousness. This is an awareness of purpose and an intent to surviv...

Duality – an Orgtology Perspective

Duality - an Orgtology Perspective
Orgtology begins through Hypothesis 2x. In this we assume that anything needs receptive and projective parts to exist. E.g., Org uses a strategy to stay relevant and operations to perform. Strategy is disruptive because it creates change. It is therefore projective. Operations must receive this change, make sense of it, and then hold it. It is ther...

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: Cons...

Organamics studies the effect of that on the performance and relevance of Org. The term blends the words "organisation" and "dynamics". The basic assumption o...
