    As others have already said this is a well written and intelligent book Throughout the text there is plenty of practical real world examples that the author illuminates on to demonstrate the concepts being discussed My perspective was entrepreneurial in nature I read this book from the standpoint of someone who is always asking how can I use this for my own business? How can I get better? Though there are numerous points of interest throughout the book I found one in particular that stood out to me the concept of resource blindness Something that I have to admit I was not aware ofIn financial markets I've related this concept to position sizing and not allocating proper amounts to certain situations which call for larger capital allocation Spending some time with the math I can definitely see how I have not been applying the right amount and this is a form of resource blindness therefore my organization is not as healthy as I initially thought It's not running as efficiently as it could beOverall the idea of viewing organizations such as businesses or even governments as biological in nature is fascinating pardon the intellectual in me but I found the text intriguing throughout Additionally I come from a medical background so the anatomy bit is slightly easier for me to comprehend than the layman but the essential message of the book that I took away was that entities are like biological systems in that they have multiple organs and tissues that make them up To function optimally reuires recognizing problems and diseases within organizations and correcting themThe book expertly lays down the advantages of organizational anatomy that allow for someone like myself to recognize these problems in a systematic and logical manner It then describes appropriate remedies for these problems It's a different way of looking at the age old problems of course but I mean have you ever thought about an organization as having a terminal illness? Have you ever considered that the disease might be neurological functional age related or general in nature? This is why the book is so good in my opinion Does my company have thrombosis for example? In other words are there limits to the access and processing of resources inside the business? This is both costly and unprofessional For a service oriented business correcting this is mission critical for survivalIn conclusion I would also add that I've spoken directly to the author and he is both well read and insightful in his commentary and understanding of the current market I would strongly urge you to consider this book seriously especially if you are an entrepreneur like yours truly a startup or have already a seasoned business Usually I would say there are only one or two golden nuggets inside every book but Organizational Anatomy is an exception to this general rule of thumbTo your wealth and successSean C KhttpswwwseanckcomPS if your not the thinker in your organization then hand this book over to the idea guygal and have them read it Your strategy and health are paramount; use your resources effectively

    I’ve started reading of this book with the mixed feelings There are so many books around which are high on promises and actually low on delivering real value especially in such not fully formalized area of organizations’ structures and their lifecycles This one has become a pleasant surprise Highly structured and packed with informational on the subject besides of the main concept it delivers Author masterfully exploits uite attractive and very applicable metaphor – comparison of organizational structures against a human’s body What concept could be close to us mere human beings than this one? What could be exceptionally useful for reader – is the chapter on symptoms of susceptibility of particular organization to disease and types of diseases organizations suffer from The book is filled in with wits and mild humor that makes reading not only thoughts provoking but really enjoyable time spending For sure it could not give you all answers or serve as a primer book on organization theory but it will definitely make you knowledgeable of major traits that represent skeleton of any organization as well as guide you through major scenarios of organizations’ rise and fall Dr Oleg Konovalov has kept his promise and really developed brand new concept in the domain of organization theory and practice I would highly recommend this book as to mature gurus as to newcomers to this domain looking for sophisticated knowledge and insights and even to just curious readers which are just looking for fun and entertainment along with obtaining certified piece of wisdom And if somebody would say that price of the book is slightly high – come on guys nowadays it could be compared to price of dining out at nice restaurants Yep this book really worth it This reading will nurture you with highly useful information and euip with practical and transparently understandable and applicable framework Besides of all aforementioned – it is really pleasure for mind to consume I’ve meant to read of course It is not a MacDonald’s stuff; this is real uality and healthy food for your mind Nicely presented easily digested with strong concept that holds all components together on a side garnish of useful info on the subject and it slightly peppered with some challenge for your cognitive abilities and abstract thinking
