Brian Layer, Practice Chair
Organizational Design is far more than just process and structure. It is at its essence aligning values, talent, culture, and strategy with the vision and mission of the enterprise. Organizational Design is a systemic approach, which embraces the entire ecosystem of an organization. At N2growth we believe Organizational Design is about creating a culture of leadership.
At N2growth we like to think of Organizational Design more along the lines of Organizational Development. It’s important to remember plans don’t develop people – experiences do. Therefore Organizational Development is much more of a day-to-day leadership reality than a theoretical management exercise. That said, it’s not as simple as a top-down initiative. High performance cultures embrace organizational design from the bottom-up, outside-in, and inside-out, as well as top down. Organizational Design has much more to do with working across segments to optimize span of awareness and influence rather than working up and down segments to optimize control.
If you’re interested in doing more by doing better - not just optimizing efficiency, but by maximizing effectiveness then N2growth is ready to help. Please contact us for more information on Organizational Design and Development services.
