About Science Based Management


Requisite Organization is the term created by Elliott Jaques to refer to the only systematically scientific approach to the effective management of work systems, including structure, managerial leadership processes and human resources. The concepts and practices embedded in Requisite Organization are the result of the systematic application of numerous scientific discoveries about the nature of work and the nature of each individual’s capacity for work.
