Organizational Engineering and the CEO

In his 2002 Keynote address to the Midwinter Conference of the Society of Consulting Psychology, Elliott Jaques first used the term “organizational engineering” to designate the field of organization and human resources management. This new term reflected the mature result of the evolution of the organizational problemsolving side of requisite organization theory. It is true that the term carries some unfortunate connotations, like the apparent lack of concern for human values such as mutual trust, personal achievement, job satisfaction, fairness and collaboration. Harald Solaas, an HR consultant and professor at the Universidad de Belgrano, in his article “Organizational Engineering and the CEO,” writes about how he deals with a CEO’s concerns about implementing requisite organization. The article notes that “organizational engineering” is really the engineering of mutual trust in human work organizations.
