Every business man or woman knows about the power hierarchy in companies and corporations. There are various options, but usually there’s a boss at the top, workers at the bottom, and usually a few layers of management in between. The bigger a company is, the more complicated the management hierachy can become. In her new book, the author shows that it can also work differently – and maybe even better – if one decided to replace the traditional structures. The For-Purpose Enterprise with its powershifted operating system is a complete replacement for the conventional management hierarchy as well as for conventional management approaches including predict-and-control. It is based upon three rulesets incorporating the four central principles:
1.Establish purpose as the supreme principle of order
2.Agile and transparent action
3.Differentiating and integrating work and people
4.Powershift and distributed authority.
Readers of “The For-Purpose Enterprise” by Jo Aschenbrenner will learn more about work, capital, legal structures, and work culture. However, it is not like other business books and approaches these topics in a unique way that can change the way a business works for good. One of the interesting ideas that are introduced in this book is that self-organization replaces conventional management and control. Readers will also learn more about the importance of social interactions and why work should be a safe space for people. It is a great book for business leaders who would like to use their own company and its power to make a positive change in the world.
