Well it's been 16 years since I published my dissertation on Transformational Leadership and its connection with what Dr. Jaques named Complexity of Information Processing. I have been working in the field since that time and am as convinced as ever of the veracity and the power of Jaques's Organizational design principles relating to structure and human capability. My list of managers who "bit the bullet" is growing. These are real people in real jobs who have finally made the structural changes they knew were needed – and that RO principles argued for, and have said "I can't believe how my life has changed." Up to now I have focused predominately on helping clients evaluate their talent pool and understanding their extant organization. I am thinking that the next 16 years would be most effectively invested in encouraging managers to act more expeditiously to put these principles in action.
