- DescriptionCurrent organizations underperform due to silo thinking. Artificial barriers frustrate efforts and perpetuate an organizational model longer adequate for the complexity of the current business world. Leaders and managers must acquire a whole-system perspective for their organizations to be sustainable. This book provides the overview, kwledge and tools to create a practical shift for 21st century management. The Theory of everything for management; an evolved and more scientific Fifth Discipline plus field book for contemporary managers. It follows on from Deming and Goldratt: The Decalogue that continues to sell today and is based on over ten years of implementation.
- Author BiographyDr. Domenico Lepore is an organizational scientist whose focus is on systemic manage- ment. He developed the Decalogue(TM) management methodology, together with Oded Cohen, world- renowned expert in the Theory of Constraints. The Decalogue provides a method for whole system transformation, from conventional, silo thinking to a systemic vision and practice. Domenico and Oded coauthored the book Deming-and-Goldratt: The Decalogue, published in the United States in 1999 by Dr. Goldratt's publisher, North River Press. This was the first book on the Theory of Constraints to be published by North River Press that was not authored by Dr. Goldratt himself. Domenico's background is in experimental physics and he has developed an original insight into the design of organizations as networks of projects. He has led successful implementations of the Decalogue in dozens of organizations for almost two decades and unique applications of Theory of Constraints to highly complex business environments. Dr. Angela Montgomery has been partner of Domenico Lepore since cofounding their first Decalogue company in Milan, Italy in 1996. She has contributed over the years to the develop- ment, dissemination, and communication of the Decalogue methodology. Since moving to North America, she has developed a special interest in working with the Thinking Processes from the Theory of Constraints to bring systemic thinking for positive change to organizations. Angela has a PhD from London University in literature and science and has always been interested in crossing cultural boundaries. She blogs regu- larly for Intelligent Management and is author of the business novel The Human Constraint set in New York during the years of financial crisis. This book illustrates the power of a systemic approach and how it can point the way toward a sustainable future. Dr. Giovanni Siepe has a background in theo- retical physics. His research work on General Relativity has been cited internationally. He began working as a researcher in the microelectronics industry and he has developed patents in the field of power integrated circuits. He continued his career as a manager in the plastics/material industry, where he developed sig- nificant experience in international marketing. Over the last 12 years, Giovanni has worked at the advancement and dissemination of the Decalogue methodology, first leading the creation and development of algorithms and software (in liaison with the University of Salerno) for the management of complex systems, and later improving its integration with the use of Statistical Methods for managing organizational interdependencies.
