(4-Frames) Reframing Organizations - A Book Review Dialogue,

(4-Frames) Reframing Organizations - A Book Review Dialogue, | Instructional Design and Leadership | Scoop.it

The 4-frames (structural, human resource, political, & leadership development)provide perspectives on organizational phenomena - a book review-dialogue.

Christine Barker's insight:

Interesting summary of this book. Reframing Organizations looks at organizations from the "4 Frames" perspective.The book presents a paradigm that requires one to breakdown an analysis into 4 parts, then ostensibly, find ways to address problems with solutions that fit into that 'frame'. I don't find the book very clear about what the prescription to cure the ill's of the frames are, but it does help me think in a clearer way when trying to analysis a situation. I ask myself, "Where is the real problem?" then "What isn't working in the frame where it resides" . It is often difficult to see the forest for the trees, and this approach helps me weed out the noise so that I can focus on just one part (frame) at a time.

Why would a corporation want to work with a start-up?

Learn tips on who to talk to at a fortune 500 company when you're looking to close a deal or create a partnership as a start-up.
Christine Barker's insight:

Big Ideas: "Are you safe?" + you will make them look good and not bad. To build faith that you bring "value", it's not necessarily having the best product. Rather, to building faith you need to share common "friends"  or have case studies with others that they believe are reputable? 

 

Sharing common community in some way adds credence to you as a valuable entity worth their time to consider.
