About the Book

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.
