Aims to assist in improving managerial effectiveness by presenting a view of six different levels of functioning in organizations, together with a means of assessing how well an organization is functioning at each level. This assessment should enable managerial energy to be clearly focused on the most important aspects of an organization’s functioning. The model presented ‐ the “layered systems model” ‐ is intended to support and reinforce models and theories already subscribed to, and to provide an improved means of transforming managerial theory into practice. The model helps make sense of the complexity, ambiguity and contradictions involved in managing the everyday workings of an organization and in managing the processes of organizational change.
