"Ad-hoc-ra-cy": any form of organization that cuts across normal bureaucratic lines to capture opportunities, solve problems and get results. In this era of accelerating change, the people, organizations and even national economies most likely to succeed are those with the ability to adjust and adapt. According to Robert Waterman Jr, co-author of "In Search of Excellence", innovation has to become a way of life in organizations large and small. What they need is an environment that fosters the effective use of the ad hoc, problem-solving work groups outside the normal bureaucracy that so often stifles initiative. Drawing on 25 years' experience in management consulting, Waterman offers clear instructions on how to establish adhocracy and make it work. He is also the author of "The Renewal Factor" and "In Search of Excellence".
