The Power of Minds at Work
Organizational Intelligence in Action
Drawing on his 30 years of experience as an organizational consultant, Karl Albrecht delivers a whack on the head to today's leaders: we've got to make our organizations smarter. He coined Albrecht's Law to express the problem:
"Intelligent people, when assembled into an organization, will tend toward collective stupidity."
Using a wide variety of personal experiences, success and failure stories, and real cases, he lays out a manifesto for escaping from collective stupidity and achieving collective intelligence - in short, organizational intelligence, or "OI". While some might argue that OI is an oxymoron, or contradiction in terms, Karl Albrecht argues that it can - and must - be achieved if our business enterprises are to move to the next level of performance of which they are capable. He defines and explains seven key dimensions of OI, and devotes a full chapter to each one. Each chapter poses seven diagnostic questions that help you evaluate the OI status of your organization on that dimension. Put all 49 questions together and you have the complete Organizational Intelligence Profile, which you can also download in ready-to-use format (.pdf) from the KAI website.
Prof. Warren Bennis of USC (author of On Becoming a Leader) says,
"This is a book about how organizations can release and deploy human imagination. What can be more important?"
