Re: The "Death" of the Traditional Organization
The only successful way to run an organisation is to have one with a good leader, or to have one with an executive. The former is likely to be more successful if the leader is really good at what he does and good with people, but when he passes on the chance of finding a similar replacement is 'difficult'. Just because soemone was #2 or #3 under a good leader is no guarantee whatsoever that they too will also be a good leader (even if everyone makes grandiose pronouncements to that effect). This seems pretty much the same in business or anywhere.
