Managing the Global to Local Paradox

Past-cast Series — Seeing relevance in earlier publications

Rabbino, Hal and James Ritchie-Dunham. 2006. Managing the Global to Local Paradox, The Systems Thinker, 17(6), 8-10.

When reflecting on why certain systems behave the way they do, we regularly look for patterns of conflict among strategic resources within the organization.  Strategic resources are those resources that management knows are important to the survival and long-term health of the organization.  This conflict among strategic resources often seems to be due in great measure to what we call the “global to local paradox” of management practices.  The global to local paradox reflects the impact of the difference in philosophy in various levels of the organization as to what to do with strategic resources.
