Why do some management ideas take root and remain viable and others wither and die? This article offers four fundamental reasons:
– All organizations are, fundamentally, living social organisms;
– Organizational culture is more powerful than anything else;
– System-focused interventions work; component-centered interventions usually do not;
– Interventions clearly tied to business strategy work; interventions not clearly tied to business strategy do not.
Success lies in the alignment of culture, strategy, and leadership.
