Professor Kenneth Mackenzie, one of the world's leading experts on leadership and organizational design, has identified in his Holonomic Theory of Organizations the 12 Holonomic Processes [HP] that are the main enabling processes by which the 6 Desired Organizational Characteristics (DOC)are achieved.

Your Holonomic Top Down Assessment indicates that you feel that

HP5. Ensuring Systematic Planning that Is Workable

is not present or working in your organization.

So, you are not realizing

DOC1. Clarity of Direction.

The Holonomic Theory of Organizations suggests that the underlying cause might relate to the following leadership Practices not being present or operating:

LP02. Developing and Using the Strategic Direction

LP03. Ensuring Unit-Level Strategic Direction

LP04. Using Strategic Long-Range and Tactical Plans

LP11. Ensuring Successful Goal Achievement

LP22. Using Organizational Forums

LP28. Managing the New Technologies

LP29. New Technologies Integration.

Also, with HP5. Ensuring Systematic Planning that Is Workable

not present or working, you will probably find that

DOC3. Clarity of Measurement

is also not present or working.
