There are all kinds of businesses out there in the world, but there is one type, where chaos is king, and the chaos naturally occurs as a result of the style of business, the processes, the work products, the types of customers.
It’s what we call a NOCO, a Naturally Occurring Chaotic Organization.
Don’t worry! If your organization is a NOCO, then you’re in good company…in many ways you are more like an advertising agency, NASA, a movie studio, or a pro football team than you are most “normal” businesses.
NOCOs are different. In a NOCO, chaos is not about bad management, but just signals the need for a different type of management. Is your organization a NOCO? Here is a simple quiz you can take — non-scientific, for sure, but it sounds pretty valid to all of our NOCO clients.
