Best Practice across organizations within in the industry
Jacob Andrews , Manager, United Arab Emirates

Can we really apply best practices that fit for an organization to another organization in the same industry?

The answer is Yes & No, however more disposition to “No”. Best Practices are applicable to very limited areas in the operational and strategic decisions.
The best practice is interwoven with organizational internal and external contexts. Hence the best practices need to tailor to fit for a particular organization environmental context. Otherwise it will be a burden to an organization. Then there is no point in calling it as best practices.
In a dynamic world there is no single best management practice even for a single organization for long duration. Success of an organization relies on how quickly the organization adapts to these dynamic environmental factors.
When we extrapolate various organizations context to theorists works and suggestions starting from Fayol’s centralisation and decentralisation, Burns and Stalker’s mechanistic & organic structure, Lawrence and Lorsch’s differentiation and integration, Lash and Urry’s organised capitalism and disorganised capitalism (Courtesy to Leicester University) clearly indicate that organizations need a balanced approach based on the environmental factors.
