How to grow effectively

Management 3.0 Module: Scaling Organizational Structure

An organization should operate like a city. Some parts emerge bottom-up while others are designed top-down. The art of management is finding the right balance between these two approaches.

In which ways do organizations need to achieve structural balance?

  • Hierarchies versus Networks
  • Specialization versus Generalization
  • Efficiency versus Effectivity
  • Centralization versus Decentralization
  • Exploitation versus Exploration

What are common patterns for balancing organizational structures?

  • T-Skilled People
  • Value Units
  • Small Teams
  • Semi-stable Teams
  • Replace Job Titles
  • Communities of Practice
  • Open Allocation
  • Double Linking
  • Team Number One
