Organizational Design

An organization that wants different results must change the way it does things because all organizations are perfectly designed to get the results they get. Strategy is a necessary component.

Lack of organizational clarity can debilitate a company. It can derail efforts to achieve business goals because people aren’t able to focus on the right work within the right structure. Well-defined responsibilities, properly empowered people and a sound decision-making framework are the keys to establishing and sustaining a high performance environment.

We can help you discover a new organizational model that fosters increased productivity, clear alignment to business strategies and fit-for-purpose organizational structures.

Strategy articulation – Based on business strategy, a set of objectives and priorities dictate the design principles of the future-state organizational model, making possible the alignment of strategy and structure.

Conceptual design – After analysis of design principles and future-state alternatives, the planned organizational model is reconciled with current operations to facilitate gap analysis of key structural elements, including organizational capabilities, role descriptions and spans of control.

Organizational assessment – Based on business strategy and conceptual design, we look across several organizational dimensions (e.g., capabilities, talent, culture, leadership) to define current challenges and identify specific changes that will likely improve performance and meet organizational objectives.

Organizational governance – With an operational, detailed design of the organizational structure, roles, responsibilities and ownership of decision rights are established to strengthen operational efficiency.
