The model developed by Husys includes the four types of organizations.




First one is the Passive organisation, which does business as it comes with least of people focus and business focus. The Second category of organisation focused more on people and less emphasis on the Business, which is called Peopulsive Organizations. The Third Category of Organisation is an Aggressive Organisation whose focus is on business and least concern for people in managing the business.
