Deliver value, agility and sustainability by designing structures, operating models and ways of working aligned to your business strategy.
Businesses are reinventing in response to COVID-19. As the nature of work becomes increasingly fluid – who does it and where, when and how it is completed – organisations need to become future ready. Focusing on how value is created and translating that understanding into a fit for purpose structure, alongside integrating more flexible and sustainable business practices are the keys to helping companies address today’s realities and tomorrow’s challenges.
According to Mercer’s Global Talent Trends 2021 study, defining future workforce needs and/or restructuring will be Australian companies’ top priority for investment in 2021. In addition, over half of Australian companies want to increase alignment between structures (methods, processes, and systems) and culture (values and behaviours).
We have now reached a point where fundamental change is required in organisations; incremental changes will not be enough. To meet the demanding and ever-changing market forces, organisations will have to fundamentally re-imagine the way they organise themselves, how they operate and create value, and the way in which they work to continue to remain competitive. They must structure themselves in the right way to align with business objectives and value creation. Integrating tailored operational models and governance frameworks will allow them to be nimble in adapting to varying circumstances and will maximise the productivity and creativity of their talent. Agile and adaptable working models will allow for flexibility in the face of future disruption. If done well, the hard work will translate into significant business impact and growth.
We will help you design and implement the right organisation structure, governance frameworks and operating model to cost-effectively and efficiently support your business strategy, unleash the productivity and creativity of your talent, and drive agility.
But organisation design can be a challenging exercise: Identifying the right design for your organisation isn’t always easy and there isn’t a one size fits all approach.
We combine our extensive knowledge of industry trends and external environmental changes with an in-depth analysis of your current context, drivers, and challenges to design a solution tailored to your organisation’s individual needs and objectives. Effective implementation is vital to the success of any change management process and we will look at short, medium and long-term implementation and communication planning to engage your workforce and gain buy-in from key stakeholders.
