Discontinuous Improvement: Five Catapulting Ideas

Over a number of years I have worked on the development of at least five catapulting ideas. They are the product of an approach to organizational problems that I first formulated in 1974 under the name “idealized redesign of the corporation.” Rather than merely solving problems, this approach dissolves them. To solve a problem is to change the effects of one or more undesirable causes; to dissolve a problem is to eliminate the causes and thus also eliminate the effects. Implementation of these catapulting ideas requires radical transformation of corporations, not mild reform. They are: interactive planning, the internal market economy, the circular organization, the multidimensional organization, and decision support (learning) systems.
