The Tricord describes all aspects of an organisation that need to be aligned for the whole to be healthy.
It is the alignment of the three outer domains of the Tricord acting in balance around the central core that is the source of organisational wholeness.
When one part of the Tricord is absent or unaligned then the organisation will tend to be dysfunctional. If all dimensions of the Tricord are clear and aligned the organisation will be whole, productive, vibrant, capable, competitive and successful.
The Tricord is a pattern of alignment at every level of the organisation: the organisation as a whole, its sub-systems (i.e. sites, divisions, departments and teams) down to the design of individual jobs.Move your mouse over an area of the image to view more details.
