We are taking a census of organizations on public record as having used levels of work complexity and human capability at some point

Responding to questions about which organizations have actually used these methods and why the methods are not better known, the society began a careful census of  the extent of use.  The organizations on this page have been found to be on public record*  We know of over one hundred that are not on public record.  We can only guess at the true scale of the use of these concepts in the world.

Please review the list of organizations identified thus far.  For convenience they are grouped by continent, country and then in alphabetical order.  

Please help us extend the list by using the form at the end of this page.

*Note:  Public record here means that the organization’s managers have written or spoken publicly about the organization’s use of the concepts.  The society lists here those organizations whose representatives have presented at our world conferences, whose managers have given interviews or video interviews, when we have found mention of their use in articles, magazines, journals, books or web pages, when their use has been discussed in the social media, and when our bibliographer has found mention in his 15 year bibliographic search about the use of our methods.

 Should any listed company wish to be removed from the list, we will do so upon receiving a request from a general manager of that company sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Being on the list indicates that the organization used some or all of those concepts associated with requisite organization, Stratified Systems Theory, or The Work Levels Approach at some point in time in at least part of the organization.  

The Society intends to use this list in the following ways:

  • to develop a more accurate estimate of the number and type of organizations that have used these methods around the world.  (We will take other censuses of practitioners:  academics, managers, and VPsHR who use these methods around the world)

  • to invite managers from these organizations to share stories of their experience with these concepts including presenting at our conferences, providing video interviews, and writing cases.

  • to encourage organizations newly considering the use of these concepts to determine that these methods have been used by others in their industry and to perhaps learn from them.

The list is being sent to our mailing list to update.  

Please help us with the Census in a way most convenient to you:

  • Use this web based-form - to add organizations now missing.

  • As a consultant to a client organization that you know to be using RO concepts, either

    • ask a senior manager to complete the form or

    • ask for permission to complete the form yourself

  • Encourage them to email their own information to us

You may write to us with any questions about the census at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Many thanks for your assistance.
