dc.description.abstractTo build anything to an excellent standard demands first we clearly see in mind how to build it to an excellent standard. That is the quality with which we build anything which again depends on the quality of our design specification. It is no different when building an organization. Modern technology based on modern physical science proves there is nothing more useful than a good theory. Yet there has been management theory after management theory to the point that for the practical manager the term is dismissive as being a waste of time. In this paper the OPD theory of organizational design is summarised and initial empirical proof offered by means of practical case studies that it does deliver in practice that which is projected in theory.en_NZ
