The importance of organizational design.
Organizations don’t always grow consistently, and structures lose efficiency over time. A company can have a clear mission, the right talent and effective leaders, but still not perform as expected. Poor organizational design results in confusion within
M&A, RIF and Reorg.
Mergers and acquisitions (M&A), Reduction in Force (RIF), and any major Reorganization (reorg) activity are all critical to an organization’s growth strategy.
It’s essential to have full visibility of the current organization and org chart and align senior executives. This facilitates speed of integration and implementation of changes through detailed and tested planning of any proposed business model. Keeping an overall understanding of the business KPIs in mind throughout this process is critical.
A lack of planning or understanding in any of these situations can lead to serious problems. These include misaligned KPIs, rising costs, and lack of desired behavior; along with a very demotivated workforce. Get all these things right however, and the organizations future is strong.
