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.
Use the patterns available within the Decision Driven® Solutions Framework (DDSF) to design your organization. Begin today by contacting the Decision Driven® Solutions team at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to start your free trial of DDSF.
