Welcome to the3pillars.org!
Three Pillars is a new model for dynamic organization management in today's volatile, uncertain and ambiguous ("VUCA") world.
The approach revisits - and in some cases reinvents - working and leadership styles that seemed appropriate in the last decades and centuries, but which may be outdated in the challenging times of today.
The core elements of this model, the eponymous Three Pillars, are the concepts "Sustainable Purpose", "Travelling Organization" and "Connecting Resources". These pillars challenge many of our traditional organizational patterns and meet the need for effective transformative approaches.
In the book, published as part of the Springer "Future of Business and Finance" series, an international and interdisciplinary team of nineteen authors explores this new model in a wide variety of fields, industries and organizations.
If you want do dive right into a comprehensive look at the model, this in-depth article is for you.
Coming Soon: Part 2
We are pleased to announce the second book on the 3-P-Model, set for release in early 2021.
Focusing on the implementation of the model, we consider a wide variety of application cases in VUCA times, including global crises like the COVID-19 pandemic.
A Closer Look
Interested in our books on the 3-P-Model? We have prepared a short summary, as well as an extensive description of the contents of the first two books to give you an in-depth look!
Work in Progress: Book 3
We are also working on the third book in the series, "Navigating a Hybrid Organization with 3-P: New Practices for the Private & Public Sector".
As analyzed in the first two books, organizations are increasingly becoming inhomogeneous. Companies for example often have to handle multiple and diverse entities with different characters (like classic production vs start-ups, hierarchical pyramid vs agile teams, business as usual vs innovation hubs etc.) which differ in their business models, systems, decision making, culture, geographies, speed of development etc. – driven by an increased requirement to adapt to a fast-changing environment
In times of change, disruption, crises and – at the same time - scarce resources the effective ‘navigation’ of such ‘hybrid’ organizations becomes more relevant than ever. The 3-P-Model will be used to address this challenge and explore practicable and effective ‘navigation approaches’ for all types of hybrid organizational settings.
We will keep you informed about our progress on a regular basis!
