Management models and theories are tools that help to shape the way we think, manage and run our organisations.
This page lists some of those management models found to be of value by the team at RapidBI.
UPDATE Jan 2011
Our slide sets have now been updated and include over 400 fully editible management models
Management models are not in themselves a solution, but a tool to help develop understanding or a common language. Remember these are only tools, an over simplification of a view of reality in a given context. Tools come and go like fashion.
While we list a great many here, please ensure you research any tool or model prior to applying it in your organisation.
As a coach and consultant I have used many of these to help explain concepts. As a consultant I have used many of these to develop understanding. They are tools, valuable tools. Only use a model if it appropriate to the situation, any model is only a representation of a concept, reality is always much more complex and involves more dimensions than a simple model can infer.
All models are equally valid and invalid – for a model to be effective we need to understand the context in which it was developed and implemented. Just because a model works in one organisation in one sector does not mean it will work in all organisations in that sector… remember a model is just that… a model.
KNOWLEDGE ->UNDERSTANDING -> ACTION
