We create organizations because they are an efficient way of doing something we couldn’t do alone. We join organizations because we are inspired by their mission, or their payslip. But once we're inside, these organizations rarely feel inspirational. Instead, we're often baffled by what we encounter: ➽ clueless managers, ➽ a lack of clear objectives, ➽ a seeming disregard for data, ➽ and the vast gulf between HR proclamations and our experience in the cubicle. So where did it all go wrong? THE ORG is unique. Based on cutting edge research from the frontiers of organizational economics, it tells you how companies and organizations really work. As such it is required reading for anyone who want to stay sane in the workplace, or to work their way up the org. In THE ORG, Ray Fisman and Tim Sullivan explain the tradeoffs that every organization faces, arguing that this everyday dysfunction is actually inherent to the very nature of orgs. THE ORG diagnoses the root causes of that malfunction, beginning with the economic logic of why organizations exist in the first place, then working its way up through the org's structure from the lowly cubicle to the CEO's office. THE ORG is packed with fascinating and surprising stories from organizations and Woven throughout with fascinating case studies-including McDonald's, al Qaeda, the Baltimore City Police Department, Procter and Gamble, the island nation of Samoa, and Google--THE ORG reveals why the give-and-take nature of organizations, while infuriating, nonetheless provides the best way to get the job done. You'll learn: ● The purpose of meetings and why they will never go away ● Why even members of al Qaeda are required to submit Travel & Expense reports ● What managers are good for ● How the army and other orgs balance marching in lockstep with fostering innovation ● Why it's the hospital administration-not the heart surgeon-who is more likely to save your life ● That CEOs often spend over 80% of their time in meetings-and why that's exactly where they should be (and why they get paid so much) Looking at life behind the red tape, THE ORG shows why the path from workshop to corporate behemoth is pockmarked with tradeoffs and competing incentives, but above all, demonstrates why organizations are central to human achievement.
