Pravir Malik has recently released a new book on his fascinating fractal approach to organisational development. The Fractal Organization: Creating Enterprises of Tomorrow explains the theory behind applying fractal concepts to organisations, and also includes a 'field guide' with practical tips and exercises to help apply those concepts to organisational management.
Mr Malik has written numerous articles on the subject of fractal organisations. You can read more about his work in our blog post 'Applying fractal systems to team and organisational development', and read his contribution to our most recent eBook, 'Dynamically aligning management of talent with market changes', by downloading Talent Management: Expert Solutions.
[This book] provides an empowering approach and set of tools for leaders to grasp how we can impact the systems in which we operate. It is easy to be discouraged by the layers of complexity within organizations and, indeed, national and global economies. Understanding fractals and the power of “being the change you wish to see” is as equally liberating as it is daunting. Malik provides a strong theoretical basis for the fractal approach and guides willing readers through to understanding by doing. Thorough, deep work.
