Dean Meyer is one of the original proponents of running shared-services organizations within companies as businesses within a business, where every managerial group is an entrepreneurship funded to produce products and services for customers.
For over three decades, he has implemented this vision in corporate, government, health care, higher education, and non-profit organizations through the careful design of culture, organizational structure, and resource-governance processes.
Dean is the author of eight books, including Principle-based Organizational Structure and Internal Market Economics. He's a former CIO Magazine columnist, and has published countless monographs and articles.
He developed an engineering science of organizational structure, with firm principles, clear frameworks, and actionable change processes. He pioneered the application of market economics inside organizations to design effective business planning, budgeting, service costing, demand management, and alignment processes. And he developed an approach to corporate culture that leads to meaningful change in less than a year.
Dean coaches executives on organizational and political issues, and personally facilitates transformation processes.
