BENEFITS OF DOCUMENT
Most managers have no useful training or knowledge in organization design, making many decisions difficult. But there is a solid body of knowledge in this area, called Requisite Organization or Stratified Systems Theory, originally documented by Eliot Jaques. This document was created to support training to our clients in major change projects, to show them why we were making the recommended changes to their structure, with learning that they could go forward and use themselves.
This 18 page briefing document contains clear diagrams and explanations that go beyond bullet points. It describes how layers in an organization should be set up, and what level of staff to put at each layer. It shows you what kinds of problems can occur when you have your structure set up poorly – too many levels of management, or too few.
If you have ever felt that your boss was micro-managing you, or your staff were borderline insubordinate, you probably had a structural problem, not an interpersonal problem.
Most people find that this information connects very well with their real-world experience of managing and organizing people.

My work has been with both consumers and B2B, and tends to involve more complex services and customer experience environments, such as financial services and technology. We have also done quite a bit of work with employees and employment branding.
In addition to an MBA from Ivey Business School, I have advanced designations including: Myers-Briggs, Certified Marketing Research Professional, Facilitating Creative Problem Solving, and more.
I've published two books:
• The Innovative Organization, 2006 (Schulich Executive Education)
• QualOnline The Essential Guide: What every researcher needs to know about conducting and moderating interviews via the web. 2014 (with Jennifer Dale, published by Paramount Books)
I've spoken extensively at industry conferences, and served two terms as an elected member of the board of the Qualitative Research Consultants Association, the international organization of qualitative researchers.
In 2013, I co-founded an international alliance of boutique consultancies, Think Global Qualitative. We support international businesses with customer insight and innovation projects across a very broad spectrum of industries and challenges.

"One of the great discoveries that I have made for my business is the Flevy library of training materials.
As a Lean Transformation Expert, I am always making presentations to clients on a variety of topics: Training, Transformation, Total Productive Maintenance, Culture, Coaching, Tools, Leadership Behavior, etc. Flevy usually has just what I need to make my point.
It is well worth the money to purchase these presentations. Sure, I have the knowledge and information to make my point. It is another thing to create a presentation that captures what I want to say. Flevy has saved me countless hours of preparation time that is much better spent with implementation that will actually save money for my clients."

"As a small business owner, the resource material available from FlevyPro has proven to be invaluable. The ability to search for material on demand based our project events and client requirements was great for me and proved very beneficial to my clients. Importantly, being able to easily edit and tailor the material for specific purposes helped us to make presentations, knowledge sharing, and toolkit development, which formed part of the overall program collateral. While FlevyPro contains resource material that any consultancy, project or delivery firm must have, it is an essential part of a small firm or independent consultant's toolbox."
– Michael Duff, Managing Director at Change Strategy (UK)

– David Coloma, Consulting Area Manager at Cynertia Consulting

Flevy has become my preferred learning source, because what it provides is practical, current, and useful in this era where the business world is being rewritten.
