We spend much time fixing organization problems – however, the most professional satisfaction comes from helping our clients to design organizations to succeed first and avoid the need to fix. Leaders often speak of culture change but rarely go beyond re-arranging the organization chart or initiating a fast communication training program.
We believe every organization is perfectly designed to get the results it gets. When you begin to design the organization for true high performance you have to go beyond the organization chart. People, Processes, Systems, Customers, Competitors. All must be put into the process for consideration. Few know how to do full organization redesigns. Fewer know how to do it well and quickly.
We have supported over 15 major organization design projects – and many more smaller support projects.
Our approach is highly collaborative. We engage your employees in the process early and often.
Do you need to make significant organizational changes – structural changes?
