Why Organisational Design is Important to your Business


Organisation design and structure can often be dismissed as business buzzwords or jargon – but in actual fact getting the right design and structure in place for your company is critical to its growth and success. 

This operational structure defines lots of things within your company.  It will create a definitive process where people know who decisions can be delegated to, what person is responsible for certain tasks – and outlines the chain of command within your company.

Organisation consulting services have become increasingly popular in the modern world, and here is how you can benefit.


Strategic Planning will be Easier

When you have a strong and firm framework in place – it allows departments to work on set goals in a collaborative manner.  There will be a much better flow of communication than before, allowing everyone to work as a team, all the while being aware of their individual roles and responsibilities within certain projects.  There will be no overlapping of resources, and everyone’s skills and talents will be put to their best use. 

To give you a greater perspective of the solution scope provided through these services, you can take a look at On The Mark. They help to strengthen strategic and operational design, team structure, team performance, customer experience, reporting, business planning and other key areas of your process.


Better Implementation of Training

As roles are more definitive – it allows you to asses much more easily who requires training – and which training to administer.  It could be that employees of a certain hierarchical level go on leadership training to learn to motivate their sub-team, it could be that everyone in the HR section go on a course on change management.  All of these things are much easily defined with a clear organizational design.


Improved Decision-Making Process

Nothing hinders a company more than not being able to get decisions made and goals met.  An organizational structure that has been well thought through – will ensure that the final decision maker is always outlined.  This means there is no dubiety when it comes to who is accountable for what.  It also gives your staff more power, as they are able to take ownership of their choices.  To perfect your structure, outsourcing to an organization consulting service is the best way forward.


Will Prepare Employees for Progression

If you have a good structure in place – then it is much easier to prepare employees to progress to management status.  The strong structure will allow a clear roadmap and training plan to develop a team and create and a strong management core. It will also motivate your staff, as they will know there is a clear plan in place for them to move up the ladder.  This means they are much more likely to work harder for you and achieve better results for you overall in terms of productivity and achieving goals.

Every company needs a core foundation – and an effective organizational design is a key starting point for that.  When you get this right, you are much more likely to have a happy team who feel safe in their working environment.
