NEW, INNOVATIVE ORGANIZATIONS ARE 'DIFFERENT BY DESIGN'
The old - yet still pervasive - mode of top-down leadership, designed in the industrial age to manage people, is clearly outdated and fraught with numerous inefficiencis and defects. The list of plights facing traditional hierarchies is exhaustive: disengaged employees, slow decision making, and bureaucratic silos that hamper both communication and productivity, to name a few.
In its survey of more than 7,000 global leaders, Deloitte has uncovered how "new organizations" are evolving - designed to take advantage of the changing workplace landscape. Their findings, detailed in the 2016 Global Human Capital Trends report, offers readers a look into how a new focus and revamped structures are addressing the transformation needed for companies to be successful and thrive in the fiture.
