Approximately 10,000 years ago, in the fertile river valleys of Mesopotamia, humans began forming intricate systems known as organizations. With the advent of agriculture, the need arose for systematic collaboration and coordination, to optimize the use and distribution of resources. This is the earliest narrative of what we now understand as organizational design.

About 5,500 years ago, ancient Sumerians invented writing, which further fueled the evolution of these organizational systems. The ability to record, communicate, and transmit knowledge across space and time allowed organizations to grow in size and complexity, branching out into specialized departments like military (sales), tax collecting (accounting), and clergy (HR, marketing).

Just over 200 years ago, the Industrial Revolution initiated another major shift in organizational design. Traditional, decentralized craft production gave way to centralized factories, requiring the structured management of vast numbers of employees and tasks. This marked the birth of operational excellence as a critical element of organizational success.

In recent years, we've seen an even more dramatic revolution, the Digital Revolution, altering the landscape once more. The advent of advanced technology has created a new kind of organization, digital and agile, characterized by dynamic teams and ever-evolving processes.
