LP28 Managing the New Technologies
when a Leadership Practice is not present or working in your organization...
you will not be able to BEST organize your organization
Managing the new technologies is the process of integrating new technologies (process and product technologies and information systems) with changes in the organization's means and in its applications. The organization listens to problems and searches for opportunities to ensure consistency among the organizational means, its technologies and their application. Finally, the organization regularly monitors the results produced by the introduction and application of the new technologies.
Professor Kenneth Mackenzie, one of the world's leading experts on leadership and organizational design, has defined 29 Leadership Practices (LP) that are essential to a successful organization.
Clearly, competitive advantage is gained when an organization is aligned for success.
The 29 Leadership Practices are the primary "indicators of interest" we use when diagnosing an organization.
When we do an organizational assessment, we know that the absence of the Leadership Practice Managing the New Technologies could affect one or more of the 12 Holonomic Processes (HP):
HP2. Defining and Updating the Organizational Logic
HP5. Ensuring Systematic Planning that Is Workable
The 12 Holonomic Processes are the main enabling processes by which the 6 Desired Organizational Characteristics (DOC) are achieved, so the above Holonomic Processes problems could affect:
DOC1. Clarity of Direction
DOC2. Clarity of Structures
DOC3. Clarity of Measurement

A full on-line assessment probes in a deeper and more complex manner and provides specific insight and suggestions.
The Organizational Diagnostic Survey On-Line (ODS-OL) we use is the most advanced working technology for assessing organizations and its leadership practices. ODS-OL is based on multiple sources of information. ODS-OL does more than compile and analyze data: ODS-OL will derive conclusions about the results of the assessment and then derive recommendations based on these conclusions.
