IÉSEG professor co-authors new book on business modelling and organizational design
Antonio Giangreco, Associate Dean for International Relations and Professor of Human Resources Management at IÉSEG, recently co-authored the book The Go-Kart Organization. A Guide to Superior Performance for Mid-Sized Companies Willing to Scale Up (FrancoAngeli Edizioni) with Gianni Camisa*.
An innovative and holistic approach to business modelling
The editors note that this book is designed to provide an “innovative” and “holistic approach” to business modelling and organizational design for companies, based on the kart metaphor. It demonstrates how superior road control, speed, simplicity, openness and risk propensity, directness and responsiveness, etc. are key attributes for karts in kart racing, and the recipe for success in many businesses.
With this book, Giangreco and Camisa seek to explain how growing and ambitious or distinctive mid-sized organizations, and even how large, multinational companies can use the kart model. It proposes principles, models, tools, and examples, showing organizations how they can adopt these methods in a business world that is becoming increasingly complex. The book also features examples of corporate stories through cases of companies that have built their success by adopting the “kart principles”
