As Work Gets More Complex, 6 Rules To Simplify

Why do people feel so miserable and disengaged at work? Because today's businesses are increasingly and dizzyingly complex -- and traditional pillars of management are obsolete, says Yves Morieux. So, he says, it falls to individual employees to navigate the rabbit's warren of interdependencies. In this energetic talk, Morieux offers six rules for "smart simplicity."

Real battle not against competitors, but ourselves, our bureaucracy, our complicatedness.

If you are a workforce manager and don't necessarily subscribe to the traditional hard (metrics, processes, systems) or soft (interpersonal feelings, traits) pillars of management you may enjoy Yves Morieux's take on the new simplicity.  Yves is a BCG Consultant and promotes a 'smart simplicity' which calls upon people at work to replace systems and processes with greater understanding of what others do at work, reinforcement of relationship integrators and improved feedback loops.  He argues this will promote better productivity and engagement however, I am left wondering whether it can apply to large workforces.  We're all suckers for simplicity.

Org Physics: How a triad of structures allows companies to absorb complexity

Org Physics: How a triad of structures allows companies to absorb complexity | Innovation | Scoop.it
A new, practical theory of leadership, organizational power and structure has emerged. It is ending one of the biggest misunderstandings in organizational science: The notion that organizations can be described through a single structure, a structure that has since the glory days of the railway corporation in the middle of the 19th century been usually depicted in the shape of org charts.

While it is clear to most practitioners today that org charts, or connected boxes, cannot even remotely describe organizational complexity and reality, theory and organization development have not advanced much from the original metaphor of organizations as top-down pyramids, lines structures, silos and stand-alone functions. Just a few years back, John P. Kotter started to promote a slightly advanced notion of organizational structure: That of a "dual operating system", of two intertwined structures that could together explain organizational life. The first structure "formal", the other one, described by Kotter in somewhat more fuzzy and generic terms, geared towards the "social" and the interaction. From the interdependence of these structures, performance would arise. The secret would be in "building" the second of those two structures.

This is also a misunderstanding. Organizations do not have two faces, but three. All of them. And naturally. What John Kotter is missing is how actual work is happening, and what the structural laws behind work and performance are. His way of describing complex social systems as having "operating systems", as in a lifeless machine, is also entirely inappropriate in the context of living systems. The metaphor is simply under-complex.

The new, emerging theory of organizations is this: Every organization has three kinds of power, and three forms of leadership, three structures. This is not a menu. There is no decision to make about having all three structures, or not. None of the three structures is optional, or nice to have. They are part of organizational physics - universal laws that apply to every organization, large or small, old or new, for profit or social.
