 Getting Your Org Charts From Zero to One

 “Of the six people who started PayPal, four had built bombs in high school.  Five were just 23 or younger.  Four of us had been born outside the United States.  Three had escaped here from Communist countries.”

                                 Peter Thiel
                                              Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build The Future

Greed and Fear

It seems that a lot is being written these days about innovation and entrepreneurship.

Why is this?

Not surprisingly, greed and fear seem to be important drivers. 

On the greed side, innovation and entrepreneurship are associated with new wealth creation.  In the broadest social sense, creating new wealth (and the profits, jobs and taxes that go with it) is a significant priority, across the private sector and for governments....everywhere.

At ground level, the quest by individuals to find the “magic formula” that can turn “boot-strapped” start-ups into so-called “unicorns” consumes much of the attention of Silicon Valley students, technologists, entrepreneurs, VCs and the business media these days.  They pursue the hunt - mostly failing.  At the same time, they are being envied, studied  and emulated globally for their unparalleled wealth creation and story-spinning capabilities.

In today's blog we're sharing  some tips about organizational design, extracted from a recent article entitled "10 Principles of Organization Design" which you can read here.  

The article was published recently by Strategy& (the former Booz & Company organization acquired last year by global services organization PWC).  

Formed in 1914, and one of the earliest management consulting companies Booz was described by Time magazine in the 1950s as "the world's largest, most prestigious management consulting firm"; known, among other things, for coining the concepts of and doing pioneering advisory work in such areas as supply chain management, product lifecycles, and organizational DNA.

We're also going to close off by sharing a neat trick with users working in any organization with an alumni association or alumni network.  You can use Organimi to create an alumni network org chart (regions, chapters, local associations) and also create an "influence diagram" for your organization's alumni network.  We've done the example using some notable alumni of Strategy&.found online.
