define ten aspects of an organization, which collectively define
the uniqueness of it. Each
aspect is composed of a number of elements and by studying these we can analyze
the organization and understand what it is and how it operates.
Although the ten aspects are composed of a total of 55 elements, we can
use the aspects on their own to give a high-level view of the organization to produce a short but structured synopsis of
it (example 1).
aspects and the elements within them, are presented in a logical sequence.
If this sequence is followed, particularly with regard to
different organizations or departments, then any
reports will be consistent with
each other. >>>
