Summary

Death of the Org Chart is a Handbook, a Guidebook, a How To Book. We will teach you how to think about your organizational structure and org chart through a different lens, from a modern perspective. You will learn how to unravel and organize the structural complexities inherent in your modern day organization. It is for people who are not happy with the status quo, who want to become organizational structure and design experts.The complexity of modern organizations can no longer be captured in your 20th century Org Chart, it requires a new thinking approach and a new technology to capture this thinking. Frustrated CEO's are asking: Who is doing what and why? Frustrated Individual Contributors are asking: What am I doing and why?   Death gives you the path to fully address the above two questions.Rumor has it that when business guru Peter Drucker was on his deathbed, someone asked him, what is the most important question in business? He supposedly replied, "Who is doing what?"
 
Such a simple question and yet it has never been more difficult to answer. Obviously this query implies others. Even in Drucker's time, it could have been expanded to: "Who is doing what, with whom, for whom, how, and why?" These days, we must also add, "…using what software, on what platforms, as part of what teams, through what communication channels, after which meetings…" ad infinitum.
 
Modern day business guru Dan Sullivan of Strategic Coach™ teaches entrepreneurs that the key to their time freedom and ultimate success is to think Who not How first.  He couples this thinking with a tool he calls his Impact Filter that gives the Who a well thought out reason that the Who can intellectually and emotionally buy in to and figure out how to do it. The Who, in our model is the Individual Contributor who is moved toward cognizance via Sullivan's Impact Filter which basically outlines the Purpose of the Position the IC is getting ready to take on. 
 
The old question, like the classic Organizational Chart, gets to something vital, but in a way that misses the ever more complicated reality of 21st century organizations. Not only has "Who is doing what?" turned into an incredibly complex question, "What am I doing and why?" has become a painfully difficult one for workers to answer. 
 
My goal here is to provide an approach and a set of tools that allow both leaders and Individual Contributors (ICs) to answer these extended Drucker questions honestly and completely. My aim is fourfold:
 
To help people understand organizational complexity – the messy complicated reality, not the neat simplicity portrayed in Org Charts.
 
To provide a clear foundation for working within this complexity by supplementing your thinking with a 21scentury Organizational Cognizance Model.
 
Introduce a software approach to augment your 2-D Org Chart with a dynamic, interactive 3-D Organizational Graph that allows one to capture and visualize the complex.
 
Finally, to provide thinking tools and facilitation examples that help organizations get buy-in, build clarity, transparency, and, ultimately, "Organizational Cognizance" into their companies.
 
What is Organizational Cognizance? As anyone familiar with the word "cognizance" might guess, it has lots to do with awareness and knowledge, but my use of the term also hearkens back to an earlier definition related to concepts of belonging and connectivity. In the days of knights and heraldry, a "cognizance" was a distinguishing mark or emblem worn by retainers, members of a noble house, to indicate their firm allegiance to it, a sign of their belief, a sign that they belonged, fit, and were connected.
 
Organizational Cognizance is about building awareness and knowledge for Individual Contributors and helping them, their fellow team members, and leaders to understand precisely how they are connected to others and to the organization at a fine level, where they fit and how they belong. If we had to write an equation for Organizational Cognizance,
