Did Requisite Organization Stand the Test of Time?

Summary

Speaker A If we were to look at the investment in human capital over this period of time from now, it's 30 years since Neil Cosby made the first invest with Elliot. We had quality circles, total quality management. We had the seven seas from Pasquale. We had organizational development, organizational culture. We had Peterson watermen the management by wandering around. We've had all of these great classics of managerial revolution that we've looked at. But when it comes right down to it, when you look at Elliott's functions in terms of let's look at work, let's look at the output of an organization, let's look at how do you design an organization from the ground up? How does work get done inside that organization? You're looking at something that's withstood the test of time. And as I said earlier, I think that the real critical issue that we have in dealing, in helping Elliot's concepts is that we have to put them in a language that I don't want to say is popular, but is accessible to a greater number of practitioners than is currently available right now. But then Elliot, I think, would say to us, well, it's tough work, and it's tough for you to slog through that book, but words are important, that concepts are important, and that you have to spend the time thinking about to grasp the meanings of the principles that I've it upload.
