Global Complexity
"In the end, the ability to handle complexity is all about people. Matching people’s horsepower with the complexity of the managerial challenge at each level, developing their skilled knowledge and experience, paying them properly, and supporting growth in their own flexibility and adaptability, are essential. a key to innovation, flexibility and adaptability. Structure follows strategy, and embodies the ability to master complexity. An innovative organization is an entrepreneurial organization, regardless of its size or history."

Ichak Adizes' PAEI management functions for identifying the requirements of managerial roles and guiding the matching of talent to roles are useful for understanding the alignment of entrepreneurial drive. Each business unit needs to have a complete set of the managerial functions (PAEI):

  • Producer (P)

  • Administrator (A)

  • Entrepreneur (E)

  • Integrator (I)


Some roles need a lot of E if change is to be encouraged and choices made about what to do. Others need big P if follow through is to be achieved. Where implementation is key, strength in I is essential. Getting A in place is needed to get beyond the Go-Go stage. Re-injecting E is how you stay at prime.

Career Management Assessment

If you hire the wrong engineer, the wrong manager, you’ve blown a ton of money. Every experienced manager knows what a God-send it is to find a really excellent employee; and how difficult it is to predict which candidates will in fact turn out to be excellent. Managers may use management assessment or career appreciation to get an independent full scale psychological profile to support hiring or development decisions. The career appreciation program is designed to help both the individual and the organization make optimal decisions. Companies also employ personal profile analysis to generate a computer report that includes an analysis of the individual’s self image and self motivation, behavior under pressure, current stress situation, a personality assessment and recommendations for interview questions.
