The Fluid Organogram
Arif ur Rehman, Professor, Pakistan, Member
Organizational design today has to respond to local, strategic and global challenges normally unpredictable. In this context I propose the fluid organogram coupled with clutter free communication:
- A fluid organogram is one that almost imperceptibly aligns itself with the dynamics and demands of change, while
- Clutter free communication calls for the smoothest, the most direct and uninterrupted flow of information from the most important to the most trivial and vice versa.

Do You Have an Example?

Hi Arif: It sounds interesting. However, do you have a real life example? An example would help other 12manage members to respond to your post. Thanks, David.

I like this idea too. The external environment of organizations changes quickly. So organization must also change quickly. So organograms need to change quickly and be flexible and yes ideally fluid. It is logical.
I have actually seen organization charts which are not having the usual lines and functions, but are composed of circles and the like, indicating groups of people who together are responsible for some range of activities or for some customer segment.
