4 Types of Organisation
If we try to establish correlation with animals in terms of how they live, we can compare & classify human organization in 4 different categories, analogously. Mostly animals live in the following 4 situations/states:
In Jungle type of organization, power plays major role. Strong dominates weak. It lacks vision, effective strategy and efficient systems. Might is right. Authority is centralized. No delegation of power. Communication is one way from top to bottom. Authority is not given, rather it is grabbed. Favoritism is prevalent and justice/fairness is denied. Mostly autocratic kind of organizations falls in this category.
Stable (तबेला) type of organizations:
In this type of organization, employees are treated like pet animals. They are retained as long as they can give milk i.e prove their usefulness in any way to the employer. Hire and fire or use and throw kind of policy. Individual performance matters more than team work. Even some time team works is considered when there is union formation and hence threat to the owner. Most of the family organizations work in this fashion. If you perform, you get carrot and if not you are thrown out. Focus on training and development is less.
Zoo type of organizations are mostly bureaucratic where animal in one cage is not bothered and do not care about who is there in another cage. Most of the government organizations fall in this category. Systems are rigid and bureaucratic. Communication is formal. Team work is lacking. Individual goals matter more than organizational goals.
This type of organization is very professional. Everyone is trained to perform in unison. Roles are defined but everyone needs to work in harmony. Systems are most efficient. Organizational goals are aligned to individual potentials. In such type of organization, unique lives united.
