Organizational Analysis and Career Projections Based on a Level-of-Responsibility/Equitable Payment Model. Technical Report.
Laner, Stephen; And Others
Following an explanation of the Level of Responsibility/Equitable Pay Function, its applicability is demonstrated to the analysis and to the design and redesign of organizational hierarchies. It is shown how certain common dysfuntional anomalies can be avoided by structuring an organization along the principles outlined. A technique is then developed for assessing the differential capabilities of incumbents for successfully discharging responsibilities at different levels of an organization; and for ensuring that the growth in their capacity to shoulder responsibility is continually taken into account. Examples are given of how the methods described have been used in managerial manpower planning, for preventing the loss of key managers, providing for management succession and filling vacancies from within and outside the organization.
