Progressive Organization Design

it's an exciting time for organization design. we are increasingly moving away from the twentieth-century models of organizing work, which created much of the pain many of us feel today:

  • all decisions are made at the top and policies and processes are installed to ensure adherence 

  • to enable decisions to be made at the top a constant need for status reports and data is requested

  • to maintain control leaders demand clear lines of accountability

  • middle managers are installed and given budgets, power and encouraged to micromanage

  • creates an environment of high anxiety, stress, transactional instruction followers, complacency, intra-competition, and disengagement 

 

our approach to organization design is to take a fresh, objective look to how work could get done to deliver the best results. we get clear on the strategy and then design structures to foster rich collaboration, empowerment and focus. 

 

applications:

  • simplifying organization structure

  • installing "agile" organization

  • designing centers of excellence (coe)

  • delivering organization design training to build internal capabilities
