Just as in a cell DNA carries information that contains and transmits hereditary patterns, so in organizations there is a similar core dimension, according to coauthors Honold and Silverman. An organization's DNA determines whether that organization is focused on facts, ideas, contexts, or individuals. This focus shapes daily business practices and results. To clarify how these patterns differ, the authors analyze four midsized manufacturing companies to show how they approached the practice of empowerment in fundamentally different ways with distinctly different definitions and results, depending on whether they were structured around facts, ideas, contexts, or individuals. Understanding the practices and results of these companies provides the tools to access your organization's DNA, allowing business practices, including leadership, management, HR, and decision making, to be brought into alignment with the predominant DNA of your organization. The result will be increased effectiveness, enhanced organizational and individual performance, and growth and development that feel natural in the organization.

With worksheets, charts, checklists, and examples, "Organizational DNA" offers practical help, insights and proven strategies to diagnose business issues, realign energies, mesh cultures, deal with mergers, and solve problems through alignment of people and practices.
