Transforming organizations into natural enterprises
Dave Pollard writes an excellent article Stewardship: Remaking Traditional Companies into Natural Enterprises on the difference between traditional organisations and what he calls ‘natural enterprises’ and how to move from one to the other.
The article includes a very useful table which summarises the main differences between traditional organisations and natural enterprises over about a dozen key organizational domains such as decision-making, size and primary objectives.
Dave also reviews Peter Block’s latest book “The Answer to How is Yes” which attempts to deal with many of the issues in 'naturalising' an enterprise.
