- 1D1. The outcomes that today’s organizations need from an OS can be summarized by Alignment, Empowerment, Integration, Optimization, and Culture (AEIOC).
- 1D2. Table 1.1. Needed AEIOC Outcomes and Descriptions.
|Outcome||Description of Outcomes Needed |
|A – Alignment||Everyone is aligned in two dimensions: around serving the external customer and around moving the organization towards its collective vision (strategic goals).|
|E – Empowerment||The organization consists of leaders and individuals who are empowered and self-directed.|
|I – Integration||The organization pulls all the elements of each organizational segment together and manages them as a whole.|
|O – Optimization||The organization as a whole is operating as effectively and efficiently as possible.|
|C – Culture||There is a proactive culture of success.|
- 1D3. VM 1.0/MM 1.0 AEIOC Outcomes
- 1D3i. Instead of producing the needed outcomes described above, VM 1.0 and MM 1.0 actually produce the following outcomes:
- 1D3ia. Table 1.2. AEIOC Outcomes from VM 1.0/MM 1.0 OS.
|Outcome||Description of Outcomes Produced by VM 1.0/MM 1.0|
|A – Alignment||Everyone is aligned in one dimension: around vertical goals.|
|E – Empowerment||None. VM 1.0/MM 1.0 does not empower leaders or professionals. Because the OS is based on authority, each level feels disempowered by the level above.|
|I – Integration||Integration is vertical. Functions operate as vertical silos with outputs “thrown over the wall” to the next function.|
|O – Optimization||Individuals are optimized over teams. The parts (functions) are optimized instead of the whole (the overall organization).|
|C – Culture||There is a reactive culture of failure because the entire system is set up to respond to what goes wrong instead of ensuring that things go right.|
- 1D3ii. The OS that is optimized for operating in a two-dimensional organization is called Matrix Management 2.0 (or just MM 2.0).
