DIAGNOSING YOUR ORGANIZATION

A "SIX-BOX" LEARNING EXERCISE BY MARVIN R. WEISBORD

In 1976 Weisbord developed a brief version of his introductory tool for managers, supervisors, and administrators wishing to improve their understanding of organizational behavior and most especially their own. 


The figure known as the "Six-Box Model" is one way to cut the complexity down to manageable size. The user can locate, most, if not all, major organizational problems in one or more of the six boxes. They are labeled as follows:


  • PURPOSES
  • STRUCTURE
  • RELATIONSHIPS
  • REWARDS
  • LEADERSHIP
  • HELPFUL MECHANISMS

For decades this little booklet has been used in organizations around the world, but especially in colleges and universities where this information is taught to undergraduates and MBA candidates who then bring it with them into their workplaces.


THE BOOKLET IS AVAILABLE AT THE BOOK STORE RATE OF $9.00 PER COPY.
