Your Org Structure is 1000 Years Out of Date!

Ever wondered why modern workplaces often feel frustratingly inefficient?

Evan delves into the fascinating history behind the organizational structures of today’s corporations, revealing how they are inadvertently rooted in medieval practices. We explore the functional hierarchy prevalent in most organizations, where individuals report up a chain that prioritizes skills transfer—an approach strikingly similar to the apprentice system of the Middle Ages. This system, designed for a simpler time, now hampers modern companies by sub-optimizing for collaboration and the flow of value in an era that demands cross-functional teamwork and agility.
