There is no one perfect design for all organizations. Design is not a one-time event, nor is it a solitary exercise.
Today’s organizations need the right structure, an effortless and pervasive positive culture and effective governance throughout, to gain and maintain a competitive advantage, their innovative edge.
Organization design is as much about leadership, supporting relationships and connections as it is about roles and responsibilities. It needn’t be an onerous task, one to cause anxiety or to be dreaded. It is, simply, the backbone of any organization’s existence and the major contributor to its success or failure.
Because leadership and relationships are integral to organizational purpose, establishing an aligned culture will reveal the benefits of reevaluating how and why your organization developed its current structure. What were the drivers? Are they still valid today? Are you getting out in front of your competition and winning the innovators’ race?
If you’re not, most liabilities can be minimized, eliminated or managed by careful attention to key elements of organization design, structure and alignment. It does not have to mean a major corporate upheaval and can be an excellent exercise, leading to a mere finessing of critical fundamentals.
We help pick out the gems in your design and suggest ways to re-think your approach, re-align your core culture and move forward as a cohesive, fully functioning whole.
