The way we design and work within our organizations is profoundly impacted by digital technologies and complexity. Speed of flow is critical for innovation, production, communication, and delivery. Arguably, silo-based, functional hierarchies are failing to guarantee the necessary speed of flow as well as quality, and involvement of people. Applying techniques is insufficient. What is required is a radical rethink to compete and thrive. Nothing less than a new way of understanding -- an epistemological framework - will do.
This book aims to provide such a framework and show how we can break free from silos and silo thinking through a truly systemic approach. It presents an operational solution that allows organizations to effectively adopt digital technologies and reap their benefits. It highlights the new kind of leadership that our increasingly network-based and distributed business world requires to achieve sustainable prosperity.
About the Author
Dr. Domenico Lepore was educated as a physicist and began his consulting career in Italy before relocating to North America where he founded Intelligent Management Inc. For over 20 years Domenico has advised CEOs and decision makers internationally and, with his team, has led dozens of implementations of his management methodology, The Decalogue, in a wide variety of industries and supply chains, from mining to IT, including startups, family businesses and multinationals. His methodology powerfully combines the work of Dr. W. Edwards Deming and Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt; it creates high and sustained focus and synchronization of resources to optimize flow while reducing variation. The proprietary web-based software, Ess3ntial, synchronizes competencies and supports the transition from a hierarchical, functional organization to a truly systemic one through a finite capacity, synchronized network of projects. A new Canadian citizen, Domenico has a passion for cinema and Pilates. He owes to his years in New York his love for Chabad Chassidus and a commitment to the application of its teachings to aid the development of breakthrough results for organizations.
