Requisite organization

In Organizational development (OD), the concept of requisite organization was developed by Elliott Jacques.

Somewhat controversial since some of his conclusions about organizations run counter to the predominant values of OD, Jacques was interested in what makes some organizations highly effective, while others fail to function and produce.

Some of the key elements in his theory of organizations

  • hierarchy to deliniate authority and accountability
  • levels of management pegged to task complexity
