Organization Design (OD)

Expertise

Organization design helps companies become more agile and better able to deal with the complexities of today's environment. As such, organization design is a systematic process of implementing effective organizational change. The objective is to improve the organization's capacity to handle its internal and external functioning and relationships. It also entails more effective decision processes, more appropriate leadership styles as well as improved skills in dealing with destructive conflict.

Several crucial questions have to be answered:

  • How can companies' strategic objectives be translated into requirements for the organizational structure?
  • How can accountabilities better be aligned with the organization's overall setup?
  • What characteristics must be installed to become a high-performance organization (e.g. lean, fast)?
