From Scalable Efficiency to Scalable Adaptability
Work in the 21st century is radically different than in the previous century. The 9-to-5, hierarchical model that took hold in the industrial age has given way to a new landscape. The pace of change is faster. Work is increasingly virtual, transparent, collaborative and dispersed. Organizations are flatter. Companies are much easier to see into. Careers zig and zag. Information flows in all directions.
The result? The corporate ladder model, along with the outdated norms and expectations it signifies, is collapsing.
In their new book, The Corporate Lattice: Achieving High Performance in the Changing World of Work, Deloitte Chief Talent Officer Cathy Benko and Talent Director Molly Anderson define an emerging model business leaders can use to capitalize on this new reality – the Corporate Lattice. The lattice model organizes a strategic and comprehensive response in three core areas: how careers are built, how work gets done and how organizational participation is fostered.
The Corporate Lattice reveals why lattice organizations are often more adaptable, more profitable, have higher return on assets and higher revenue growth than their ladder counterparts. It also provides lattice-in-action case studies from Cisco, Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, Thomson Reuters, Deloitte and Thrivent Financial, among others.
