A strong leadership team recognizes the need to pull a company’s diverse moving parts together into a comprehensive, efficient process to produce measurable results. Integral to this are systems designed to get things done, which can be replicated and sustained to enable a business to accommodate change and achieve success.
Organizational Development and Structure is the designing of these systems. It involves building or changing a company’s culture, values, goals processes, structure and dynamics in a way that allows a collaborative working environment where leaders and employees can bring diverse perspectives together and identify issues and solutions that improve efficiencies. As competition continues to intensify, companies that want to survive must have well-developed and cohesive organizational structure and processes that will enable them to overcome challenges.
The fact is that quality manufacturing and production is of no value without good distribution and customer service. When systems don’t mesh, stress and conflict is inevitable, which aggravates existing problems, as well as creating new ones. Of course the ultimate cost of these problems is angry customers, lost opportunities, eroding productivity and failure to achieve adequate revenues and profit objectives. Inevitably, this results in a sick culture that can be deeply entrenched and operating on the “blame game” vs. solution-driven structure and may not have the capabilities to correct these flawed systems. Bringing in outside expertise is often the best recourse.
As neutral parties, Organizational Development professionals have the experience, training and knowledge to pull together the pieces to create a collaborative environment that can set a business back on the path to success. Such experts can also be a cost-effective resource when a company brings them in on a regular basis as to evaluate and retool structures and processes that are no longer in alignment due to changing internal or external factors.
