    Designing Agile, High Performance Organizations

    Many factors impact the performance of an organization – one of the major drivers is the design of the organization – structure, roles, processes, metrics, technology, people-talent, culture. Organizations are like complex machines that have multiple elements that must come together in the right way to effectively and efficiently deliver the desired end-result.

    Designing organizations can be complex and challenging:

    Where should I start?
    How do I link the elements of the organization together?
    How do I ensure they are aligned to the strategy of the organization?
    Many business leader’s inclinations are to draw an organization chart and focus on the organizational structure and believe the other elements of an organization – roles, policies, processes, skills & talent, metrics, goals, technology, culture, etc.. will fall into place.

    It is not until after they have launched the restructure and confusion and chaos ensues they then attend to other elements of an organization and try to patchwork the organization together.

    There’s got to be a better way!

    Transforming and restructuring an organization requires a systematic approach to designing the organization and aligning it to the strategy and desired outcomes.
