Requisite Organization – The Only Total System Approach to Management


A unified whole system for effective managerial leadership that is integrated, flexible, fair and effectively productive.

Requisite Organization is the term created by Elliott Jaques to refer to the only total system approach to the effective management of work, including structure, 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 individual’s capacity for work.

Requisite Organization is an evolving model based on more than 60 years of continuing scientific research by Elliott Jaques, aided, supported and validated by the research of colleagues around the world.
