System Approach in the Consistency Concept as a Way of Organisational Analysis

Iwona Chomiak-Orsa , Michał Flieger


Background. Organisational excellence is a process that becomes more and more difficult in nowadays’ organisations. One of the areas in which this organisational state is built is organisational management nature. When it comes to competitive organisations process management and process organisations are very often introduced. What is very often forgotten is a kind of consistency that must follow process structure implementation and ongoing operations. The problem of consistency is almost not present in this meaning in literature of the subject, so it is a very new approach. To manage in a consistent way organisations need to analyse companies from a static and dynamic perspective. The management of contemporary organisations requires from the managers not only well-established knowledge and wide experience. The problems faced by organisations go beyond the management framework defined in the literature. The organisations are evolving in order to achieve organisational excellence. A key determinant of the improvement of the organisation is to create a coherent management system, which will include all the layers and the perspective of the organisation. Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult to obtain in practice. The identification of these difficulties was the main impetus for the considerations presented in this article. Research aims. The aim of the article is to make a synthesis of the literature devoted to the topic of the consistency of the management structure levels. Unfortunately, the literature in this area is not too abundant, yet. Therefore, the purpose of the study was to identify the main trends of literature in this area and to present an original, synthetic concept to create organisational cohesion. Methodology. In view of the theoretical nature of the article research methodology consisted on the views of the authors as a result of a literature review. Then the authors were also tempted by several design proposals that are conceptual. The desk research was carried out by studying the literature considering consistency in management and confronting it with the authors’ own concepts. Most of the article was developed by using the authors own ideas and in this way it is a new input into management theory. Key findings. As the main source of the problem that is described in the article, the authors pointed out the lack of consistency between the planes of management. The pursuit of organisational excellence is a continuous process, which forces the evolutionary nature of the organisation. Thus, the flexible principles of the organisation’s functioning in the direction of self-improvement, designing or creating an event organisation may constitute, according to the authors, one of the directions of organisational consistency.
