Adhocracy and Porous Departments
 
 
As organizations get larger, they begin to stifle the ability of subunits to make decisions and respond automatically to change. One of the major reasons for the success of the corporate raiders of the 1980s was the efficiencies to be gained by simply buying highly diversified companies and breaking them apart into their individual, separate businesses. The resulting freedom and flexibility often produced much more profitable businesses.

Organizations of the future will accept adhocracy:

 
Federations of relatively autonomous units each of which can operate entrepreneurially. And within each unit, the structure will be more fluid or porous. Arbitrary barriers between and within departments will be less important – may even be removed – to allow people to “float” more between units, contribute to decisions, and get key jobs done.
