Organizational Leadership – Introduction

There is a notion that the United States work environment
will morph into a two tier system. The first tier is the Executive Leadership.
This group determines the direction of the corporation or business unit and the
strategy to get there. The second tier is the people who provide the services
to implement the strategy. That doesn’t sound too far away from what happens
now, except the second tier will mainly be engaged and compensated by a type of
contract work. The strategy will call for certain work components that are
arranged by a timeline.  Contractors will
come and go based on the components. 
Basically, it is outsourcing everything except Executive Leadership.

But the downside is growth. As the Executive Leadership grow
the company more and more components are working. Some are cohesive and others have
no relationship whatsoever. It is the latter that creates a new form of inefficiency.
As the corporation gets bigger the relationship of the business units gets
further away from each other. The contract workers might be providing the same
service, but working on different tracks of the strategy and for different
Executive Leadership. So now you look over the landscape of the company and
nothing fits together. Everything is its own silo.

So what currently happens is a form of middle managements.
But unfortunately that doesn’t really correct the problem. It just adds two
layers of convolution for every layer of complexity it takes out. Finding a
solution that doesn’t involve inserting a middle management is ideal.

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
