Improving organisations the world over. One manager at a time.

The Science

Ever since there were employees working within organisations, researchers and consultants were engaged to improve their effectiveness.

RateYourBoss is based on the investigation and work of Dr Elliott Jaques, a Canadian researcher and psychologist. Jaques spent his entire career developing a scientific approach to identify and refine those aspects necessary for running effective workplaces. He is a highly published author, and there is an honorary organisation based around his work, with a host of resources that can be accessed at:

Jaques recognised that organisational dysfunction is not the result of deficient employees; but poor management practice, poor organisational structure, and inadequate systems of work.

The body of knowledge stemming from his work is known as Requisite Organization.
