Making Work Systems Better: A Practitioner's Reflections

Luc Hoebeke
Hoebeke, Staes & Partners, Belgium


Abstract
Luc Hoebeke builds on the ideas of Checkland, Beer and the sociotech school, and combines theory with practice to show how organizations work. Based on a non-hierarchical model of organizations, his book provides a framework for recognizing the mechanisms for success of organizations and improving performances by highlighting and strengthening these mechanisms. The text encourages managers to reflect on their own experiences, to avoid the chaotic detail of constant change and to concentrate on their true strategic intentions. Read more about the book in the foreword by Peter Checkland.
