Organisational Anatomy (Towards the Twenty-First Century Organization) is a non fiction guide by author Oleg Konovalov which focuses on management strategies in businesses of varying sizes. The over-arching concept of the book is to view one’s own organisation as a human body, treating its organs as the processes and functions which need to take place in order to maintain a healthy business. Through this metaphor, Konovalov is able to break down the five primary categories of organisations into the services which they perform, giving each an anatomical reference that will enable newbies to the world of business to understand their functions better. From here, the author moves on to discuss the ‘diseases’ that can affect this body, namely those bad habits that many business owners get into as time goes by.

Oleg Konovalov writes clearly and concisely about the world of business management, highlighting the many faux pas of different organisations and the strategies they attempt to implement. The analogies make it easier for those new to the world of business to comprehend some of the more challenging concepts, whilst the text is organised well into shorter, more readable sections. The prose itself is very engaging, keeping the reader interested in what can often be a tedious topic. For a short read, this book packs an intensive punch of information and ideas that seem to have practical relevance to organisations of all sizes, but particularly to those who are just starting out. Overall, I’d highly recommend Organisational Anatomy (Towards the Twenty-First Century Organization) to all those with an interest in business management.
