Decision: Organization Design

As a consultant, I’ve seen lots of companies with great technology and processes fail because of misuse of their most valuable assets; their people.  Much of this waste of human capital is caused by poor organization design.  Even a good organization design can be frustrated by a bad staffing strategy that puts the wrong type of individuals in leadership positions.

I’ve included an organization design decision branch within the Decision Driven® Strategy pattern to facilitate better decisions in this area.

Whether you are a for-profit business or a non-profit seeking to fulfill your mission, consider the following criteria when defining your top-level organization.

Similar organization design criteria can be applied to any portion of your enterprise.
