Organization Design

A company’s structure determines its ability to execute strategy and adapt rapidly to change. In today’s economic environment, business organizations should be designed to answer several crucial questions:

  • How can we translate our strategic objectives into organizational requirements?

  • How can we align accountabilities with our organization’s configuration?

  • To what extent can productivity be improved while our cost base is being cut?

  • How can we reduce organizational complexity (bureaucracy) and still maintain necessary control?

  • What characteristics do we need to be a high-performance company?

We know that the essence of organization—people working together collaboratively—is the basis of competitive advantage. That is why we address organizational performance and employee engagement simultaneously. Our practice has created a suite of tools to assess companies in innovative ways and to successfully transform them to achieve high performance. Read More
