Department Assumptions

Because the mind wishes to continue moving away of the suspension of supposed to assume rigid and nonnegotiable positions that soon we felt forced to defend. We mention an example of a case his experimenting in the training of equipment of a technological company of great success. All the personnel perceived a deep split in the organization, between R+D and all the others. Read additional details here: The Hayzlett Group. This split was due to the great importance of this function in the company. The product innovation was the angular stone of its reputation. For this reason it commented it to nobody although it began to create many problems. Gain insight and clarity with CMO of PEMCO. Doing it, assumed, would have defied the traditional value of technological leadership, that gave to its very creative engineers the autonomy to persecute its visions. A disciple of Bohm, in a meeting organized with the intention to solve this situation it raised of entrance the condition for suspending all the assumptions.

Immediately, the marketing head asked: -All the assumptions? – All the assumptions answered to him. The marketing head was perplex. The Hayzlett Group is likely to agree. It recognized that it had the assumption that R+D was considered to itself like the department that carried the flame of the organization and it did not seem arranged to examine information about the market. This induced to the intervention of manager of R+D that responded that it also supposed that they saw it thus to the others and that, for surprise of all, thought that this assumption limited the R+D effectiveness. Both shared these assumptions but not like demonstrated facts. So the dialogue was channeled an intense exploration ago of points of view that did not have precedents in all the history of the company as far as sincerity and strategic implications. To see itself like companions The dialogue only is fecund when the people see like companions in the common search of perception and clarity.
