WHAT IS A REQUISITE ENTERPRISE?
In a nutshell, it means work gets done without fuss by people who look forward to doing it in an enterprise that is working towards being sustainable. Three basic measures of an enterprise’s success are whether it achieves its goals, whether its employees find fulfilment in working there and that it does no harm. Requisite Enterprise (RE) provides the principles of organisational design as well as the knowledge and skill required by leaders to create a workplace that enables people to achieve organisational goals.
Our approach is based on the work known as Requisite Organization as it is a systems approach based on Complex Adaptive Systems theory. The fundamental tenants rest on pragmatic, integrated systems and behaviors that continually build and reinforce trust. Pioneered by the late Dr. Elliott Jaques – psychiatrist, medical doctor and social scientist, these ideas have spread worldwide over 60 years. His original thinking was shaped and enhanced by many eminent thinkers from multi-disciplinary backgrounds.
Integrated with the Requisite Organization concepts are the thinking from a number of other organisational thinkers, past and present, all of which result in creating a workplace of fairness and trust that allow people to use their capability to deliver for the enterprise. This overall integration is what we call Requisite Enterprise – RE.
We acknowledge and stand on the shoulders of many great pioneers and thinkers and as well as the learning received and given by our long term clients. We have extended the application into the important area of assisting enterprises that seek to develop as a truly sustainable entity.
