When less is too much

Organization Design

Organizational structure is enacted through and defined by role relationships that set the context for all social interactions: interpretative frames, expectations of other people, and predictions of exchange processes. Through an organization, people attempt to concert their efforts towards a common outcome that transcends individual limitations. How the organization is designed and implemented has a great impact on organizational effectiveness. Clear definition of accountabilities and authority, requisite stratification and interdependent division of labor are more conducive to achieving intended outcomes than incidental, undefined structures and unrelated activity patterns.

In case the current organizational architecture is un- or underdocumented, it is advisable that Organization Design is combined with or preceded by Organizational Analysis to establish a solid starting point for the redesign endeavor.

Our Organization Design, at a high level, encompasses:

  • Determining design criteria
  • Specifying the organizational target architecture
  • Analyzing the gap between the current and target architecture
  • Creating macro-level design
  • Developing a roadmap to implement the design

The design is guided by pertinent conceptual and methodological underpinnings such as Requisite Organization, socio-technical systems design, systems theory and complexity theory.

We are a member of Global Organization Design Society (GODS), a community of executives, academics and consultants, dedicated to forward the Requisite Organization approach.
