This is the final of our four organizational models proposed by the fertile mind of Charles Handy. For the others, take a look at our videos on:
• The Gods of Management
• The Shamrock Organization, and
• The Federal Organization
The Triple-I company is the primary home of 21st century knowledge workers.
The astonishing rise of internet-based software companies, web-based news aggregators, digital information providers, and the high-tech consultancies that serve them, seems to me to be ample evidence of Handy’s prescience.
The Triple-I company capitalises, above all, on:
This organization treats smart people as individuals, so follows closely on Handy’s earlier models of the Task and Person cultures in his Gods of Management model.
People within a Triple-I organization are often focused on their own personal success and on their self-development. So a successful Triple-I organization will need to create a sense of community and belonging to hold onto people… what Handy describes as a ‘membership community’.
As with Handy’s Federal Model organizations, therefore, the core of a Triple-I organization must assert the lightest of touches over the professionals it employs. Decision-making needs to be decentralized, with only the core strategic direction coming from the center.
