Design & Training
Building Innovative, Collaborative, Human-Centric Organizations
To deliver experiences, products, and services that bring value, the organizations behind those offerings need to be able to operate effecitvely. They must be able to respond and adapt to changes and disruption and utilize the talent and ideas of their people in ways that propel the organization forward. Through Organizational Design – the intentional arrangement of people, principles and practices, technology – we work with organizations to grow their maturity in innovation, collaboration, design, and human-centricity.
Helping Innovation and Collaboration Take Hold
No matter how well intentioned and structured your vision for the future is, unless your organization operates in a way that supports your strategy, you won’t get as far as you would like. Organizational culture isn’t just about team retreats and casual dress Fridays. It can be seen as a kind of operating system for how people interact and work gets done. We help you evaluate the shared beliefs and perceptions of the organization and is both reflected and reinforced by things like roles, structure, processes, tools, skills, and more.
Always Improving Through Continuous Learning & Iteration
Improving organizational effectiveness is not just a "set it and forget it" type of event. Any design effort takes this into account. Our approach incorporates continuous learning, training, and coaching in order to iterate, refine and strengthen your organization over time. Our trainings are done mostly on-site to help teams understand and immediately incorporate new concepts.
“Organizational design is more than ‘reorg,’ more than just taking the deck and reshuffling it. Done correctly, the process of organizational change can be designed and managed as beautifully as a new toaster or a customer loyalty campaign.”
