A Synchronization Approach for Organizational Success: Etke
This paper presents the characteristics of a synchronized organizational model where Emotional Competence (E), Technology Competence (T), Knowledge Competence (K) and Environmental Impact (E) play a key role in organizational success. Synchronization is defined as the process of linking events and actions so that they occur at the same time or in a predetermined sequence. Synchronized organizations are usually successful, since they are able to move all their constituent components in concert and in harmony with each other so as to derive maximum synergy and performance from the organization. We realize that organizational success is closely linked with the integrative force that binds all internal and external entities that support and nurture the organization
The paper focuses on the formulation of the global model for ETKE. We also describe the particulars of an on-going survey based on the research model that is a subset of the global model. A pilot study has been conducted and results have been analyzed. We have concluded that this is a very practical and comprehensive tool to measure and assess performance and productivity in any type of organization around the world.
