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...

The effect of culture on organisational design

The effect of culture on organisational design - an orgtology perspective
The purpose of organisational design is to create order. Yet too much order will drive predictability, which might blind us to a fast-changing world. To change, Org must be creative. Organisational culture will decide how much uniqueness we allow within Org. We need uniqueness for abstract thinking. It keeps us relevant. In so, we need order to eff...

Developing an organisational organogram – an orgtology perspective

Creating an Organogram - an Orgtology Perspective
To create an organogram from an orgtology perspective differs from traditional methods. Here our task is to first understand the flow of activity before we add resources and authority. We must at all times ensure efficiency. Not only regarding resources, but also in terms of process flow. We cannot assume that people who hold similar &nbs...

Integrating the Process and Project Constructs

The process construct is a blueprint for running the operations of Org. A project construct defines the plans that we make to change Org. The former ensures performance whilst the latter secures relevance. Process and project constructs must therefore give an integrated solution to the performance and relevance of Org. We cannot understand these co...

Sameness and Difference – the core of Workplace Diversity and Inclusion – an Orgtology perspective

Workplace Diversity and Inclusion - an Orgtology Perspective
I am Caucasian, male, 52 years old, and speak with an Afrikaans accent. It is my fixed identity. Physically I cannot be anything else than that. Yet mentally I can be an incredible variety of that. My body is an algorithm. It restricts me. My mind is abstract. It frees me. Jointly, they become an expression of who and what I am. As humans we expres...

Organisational design – a future perspective.

Introduction to Organisational Design - An Orgtology Perspective
Without Organisations we would be primitive. It is through Org that we can control things and people. Religion, politics, philosophy, ideology, culture, business, and government… These are all organisations. Even language is an organised expression. Org gives humanity its collective consciousness and holds its intelligence beyond physical form. In ...

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...

Using the 4-Window Map (4WM) to resolve EOP problems

4WMW Model of Orgamatics
The 4-Window Map (4WM) is an orgamatics tool. I designed it in 2006 as a tool that can deal with complex problems in a simple way. Currently, Orgtologists use it to grasp and resolve organisational problems. In orgamatics, most organisational problems relate to EOP, which stands for Exposure, Opportunities, and Process. The post "The EOP Analy...
