Welcome to The Bayswater Institute

 

The Bayswater Institute seeks to help organisations integrate human and social considerations with economic, structural and technical ones in the design and development of organisations and work. To do this, it uses the concepts, methods and findings of the social sciences.

Both strategically and in their day-to-day operations all organisations face human, structural and technical problems which are closely intertwined with each other and which have to be played out in an economic context. Growing organisational competence depends on balancing the demands of these systems - on achieving integration. 

The Institute aims to improve the efficiency of organisations without damaging the quality of their members' lives; to improve the quality of working life without damaging efficiency; and where possible, to improve both simultaneously.

The Bayswater Institute was founded in 1991 by Dr Lisl Klein, with the help and advice of Harold Bridger, as an independent research organisation and a registered charity. Its first President was Professor Marie Jahoda.
