The Essence of TameFlow
Breakthrough Organizational Performance Innovation
This book will introduce you to the fundamental ideas of the TameFlow approach.
TameFlow is designed to bring about breakthrough organizational performance innovation; not single digit percentages but 2, 5, 10 times or even more. TameFlow aims at moving an organization from ordinary and average performance levels to outstanding performance. TameFlow is based on a few important ideas.
TameFlow builds on three transformative social forces:
- Inspired Leadership
- Unity of Purpose
- Community of Trust
In TameFlow, each organization is considered as a social body of individuals that communicate and interact to make decisions and act upon them. TameFlow is a praxis driven holistic system of performance improvement based on reference models of thinking and decision making. The aim of TameFlow is to allow anybody, at any level of an organization, to exercise judgement about how to decide and act in their current situation.
It all starts with the organization’s leader who, inspired by some higher purpose, defines the organization’s goal. The leader needs to architect the social structure of the organization on order to develop a community of trust and unity of purpose around the goal. The development of the community of trust and the unity of purpose is achieved by working with the four flows: operational flow, financial flow, informational flow and psychological flow.
At first the four flows need to be aligned so that any conflicts and partial interests are removed from the organization. Then the throughput of all four flows is increased.
The removal of conflicts and partial interests are achieved through delegation of decision making. In this effort, the inspired leader and the entire organization adopt mental models, through which coherent, consistent and non-conflicting decisions can be made. Thereby the quality and speed of decision making and their execution will increase, dramaticaly building up the overall level of organizational performance.

How to Design Organizations that Flow
Creating high performing organizations is a challange for any business owner or executive manager. There are no recipes that can be given. Yet there is a structured way to think about how you can create an organization that flows. An organization that flows is one that performs at its best as a system, and yet is still capable of learning and continuing to improve.
Patterns have been used in many fields, but they are relatively unknown for organizational design. Yet, stemming from the field of Architecture, they are most useful both for describing and for designing organizations and even their operational practices. In this book we will explore how to use patterns not only to design organizations, but in particular to design high-performing organizations.
