Jeffrey Pfeffer is trapped within the old paradigm of power-based organizations.
What kind of power are we talking about here?
I would substitute the term "power" by "reputation".
We need to minimize as much as possible instituted power and build our organizations on relations based on value.
Reputation is at the origin of soft power, attraction, charisma, etc. But this is not the power Jeffrey is talking about.
