Readers Top 10

The readers top 10 is a list with the 10 best assessed contributions, assessed by our readers on a 10  point scale according to an advancing average over the past 7 weeks.


Designing the head office of a multinational corporation
Pieter Klaas Jagersma
Multinationals are reorganising in response to the changing environment, hoping to capitalize on opportunities for growth. These new business challenges often lead to changing corporate focus and, consequently, a changing role for the headquarters.


The Nature of Organizations
Interview with Arie de Geus
David Creelman
Arie de Geus has received international acclaim as an author. Here, he takes a critical stance in regard to the tendency to think in terms of ' shareholder value'. This mindset often leads to companies treating people like products or skills to be bought for a limited purpose before being disposed of. Other methods of 'governorship' must be found to serve as an alternative to the 'limited liability company'. De Geus outlines the possibilities that he sees.


Change Management and Wake-up Calls
The power of now in E-business
Burt Rost van Tonningen
The author offers his suggestions as to how a company can develop and implement an Internet strategy.

ManagementSite interviewed Shermer this summer on skepticism, blacks swans and the evidence based management movement.


Finance 2.0 – Crisis
Superstructures or back to Cooperative Public Services?

Social Companies part two
Back to the heart of the matter: recursion and the revival of meaning
Frans van der Reep
The Internet is changing the way we organize work. It is shifting the requirement for what we call the ‘schedule push’ and the hierarchical organization that it implies, and therefore it is removing the type of control that is conventionally used.


Moving FORWARD with solution-focused change
A results-oriented and appreciative way of making progress
Coert Visser en Gwenda Schlundt Bodien
The solution-focused approach has helped coaches, trainers, consultants and managers to be more effective in realizing their goals. Moreover, it has often made their work more enjoyable. This article presents a simple, new, and - hopefully - sticky model to describe the solution-focused approach: the FORWARD-model.
