In my past two articles (part 1 & part 2), I introduced a new organization structure that uses the traditional organization pyramid turned on its side.  This sideways pyramid can be seen as an arrow pointing toward a target with the leader out in front leading the way.  The target or goal that each organization needs to be striving for is long-term sustainability.  To accomplish this lofty goal, a list of infrastructure requirements called the Organization Bill of Rights were explained.  The basic concept behind these requirements is a leader of any organization has an obligation to look out for the best interest of the organization.

In the first article of this series, the reader was introduced to a new organization structure in the form of a sideways pyramid.  The structure helps break down barriers, improve communication and results.  One of the main reasons for this success is the ultimate goal of long-term sustainability which was identified as the primary objective that is more critical than any other goal.

We have all seen the traditional organizational pyramid with the person in charge at the top.  This pyramid usually has many layers in the middle consisting of some form of management or supervision, and all the line workers at the bottom.  For some, this may be the only pyramid ever experienced.  The concern I have with the traditional pyramid is that it depicts the leader resting on top, and this is the negative perception of the leader that many employees have throughout the organization.
