A Framework Designed to Implement Strategy

The neglected leader is the designer of the ship
— Peter Senge

Every Organisation has a Purpose and a Strategy, whether they have articulated it or not. Without thought, the elements of that Organisation that drive success – culture for example – will not be aligned.

Successful Organisations recognise that in order to achieve their Purpose and Strategy, they must first design the right Organisation. By aligning all the elements of the Organisation to the Strategy, we can increase the likelihood of success.

We work with you on a deliberate process to ensure that the key elements of your Strategy are extracted - your will have an Organisation by Design. The key elements are:

Purpose: Why are you here and is this clear to your staff? Without a clear ‘Why’, your Strategy may be derailed from the organisation at the first stress.

Culture: What are the key elements of your culture that will drive success? Which behaviours will be championed and which need to be sidelined? How will you recognise and reinforce these?

Capabilities: Have you identified the key organisation capabilities that will be needed to achieve the Strategy? How will you build these into your recruitment, development and promotion systems?

Communication: Are you clear on how you are to make decisions and where the boundaries are between roles and departments? Does the rest of your organisation understand what are you trying to achieve? Do they know what success looks like?

Clarity: How will you ensure that your organisation design will take hold? What governance model will you use to ensure that the changes are appropriately implemented?
