Edisto focuses on levels-based organizational analysis, design and development for small and large organizations alike. With ‘levels’ we do not refer to the hierarchical organizational structure, as such, but more broadly to the manifestation of increasingly developed organizational logics – the underlying principles, beliefs, and assumptions that shape and guide the behavior and decision-making of individuals within an organization.
This stratified system of organizational ‘operating systems’ provides a powerful lens, through which a range of business challenges can be meaningfully approached.
