REVIEWS "Bodnarczuk makes organizational culture understandable,
practical, and usable. His numerous concrete examples give life to
a simple yet comprehensive theory of culture, making both the
quantitative and qualitative aspects of day-to-day operations in
organizations meaningful. Any serious student of culture, change,
or organizational assessment will benefit from reading and using
this book." Richard Bents, Ph.D., Founding Partner, ShareOn,
Corporate Leader Resources "In this important new book, Mark
Bodnarczuk has given us tools for working objectively with that
elusive subject, organizational culture. He frames the subject as
an integration of the 'hard' structures-and-systems school, on the
one hand, and the 'soft' human-performance perspective, on the
other - asserting that understanding culture brings the two
together. His rigorous methods ensure that the hidden or auto-pilot
aspects of organizations can be brought into awareness to increase
flexibility and effectiveness. These are powerful ideas in an era
of rapid change and innovation." Don Fowke, SM, P.Eng. FCMC,
Co-Founder, New Management Network "If your organization is
interested in sustainability, then culture competence is a must.
Mark Bodnarczuk's book is an essential 'radar' system for doing
transformational work in today's organizations. Making Invisible
Bureaucracy Visible guides and supports the kind of organic
cohesion that companies need in these turbulent times. I have
waited a long time for an excellent and professional approach like
this!" Reiner Blank, Ph.D., Future Systems Consulting, Hamburg,
Germany "I've read as many books as I could find over the years on
'culture' in search of a guide to provide a practical model and
guidance for understanding the tacit and explicit forces that drive
the cultures that human beings create. Mark Bodnarczuk has provided
the most complete guide the reader will ever find. In one of the
more remarkable achievements in this field of study and practice,
Making Invisible Bureaucracy Visible, will make the invisible and
heretofore fuzzy concepts about culture very visible, clear,
pragmatic, and ultimately useful." Roger R. Pearman, Ed.D., author
of Hardwired Leadership PRODUCT DESCRIPTION Most managers struggle
against the flow of overly complex systems and are frustrated by an
invisible force that undermines their attempts to effect positive
change. Their instincts tell them that the organization's
structures, systems, and culture are preventing them from getting
the results they want, but 'culture' has remained one of the least
understood aspects of organizational life - until now. This book
reveals how organizational culture can act like an Invisible
Bureaucracy[ that frustrates and undermines organizational
performance. The author argues that assessing and changing
organizational culture is of little value unless it is focused on
real business challenges. Understanding how the forces of Invisible
Bureaucracy actually work begins to transform 'culture' into a
reliable resource that can be intentionally used to achieve an
organization's goals and objectives. Like a pair of infra-red
glasses allows you to see things at night, the material in this
book will make Invisible Bureaucracy visible. Once you've learned
to 'see' differently, you'll never view organizations (or the
people in them) the same way again.
