Today’s world is dominated by technological advances and blurring boundaries between sectors and their values chains. These challenges are often the reason for redefining the structure of an organisation. A good organisational design shows how tasks are allocated to roles and teams, how cooperation takes place and the management processes governing this.
A new or existing organisational design will provide you with an integrated structure that enables you to focus on your strategic goals. No unnecessary meetings and overcrowded schedules, no double decision-making or incoherent activities. A good design will match the organisation’s goals and fit within its context. The organisational structure does not follow the strategy, as is often assumed, but it can support – or hinder – strategy realisation. For example, the design will affect the degree to which your organisation succeeds in putting the customer first, working cost efficiently or preventing compartmentalisation.
