Controlled Dependence

In 2017, Derek Hendrikz introduced an RPO maturity model. It aims to decide how mature Org is to be both Relevant and Performing. The model poses five levels of maturity. They are from level one to five: dependency; controlled dependency; independence; controlled independence; and interdependence. The difference between dependency and controlled dependency is that the variable alone is inconsistent, whilst when controlled, it is consistent. E.g., a construction team who sits in the sun and does nothing since the supervisor is sick, is dependent. But a military platoon who marches in perfect synchronicity to the commander’s orders has controlled dependency. The criteria for controlled dependence are:

  • Difficult to function without a leader.
  • Predominantly reactive (urgent things outweigh important things).
  • Survival is to diligently follow the leader.
  • Performance is drilled into employees (we do not question the way we do things).
  • Transactional leadership is a preferred style.
