The Hard Side of Business Transformation

Designing responsive structures, roles and processes for the future

A lot of management attention often goes to the soft side of change, i.e. people adoption of change and developing new mindsets and organizational culture. Extremely important, but culture often follows structure! So, how does your organization invest in developing this critical ‘structural’ knowledge?

Your 5 burning questions?
— Question 1 —
How can we develop a ‘common language’ to talk about (and agree on) ways to adapt our organizational structure and governance?
— Question 2 —
How can we build responsive structures and organizations, without losing our identity? What are new insights and practices that truly deliver value?
— Question 3 —
How do we set up a process of organizational design? Who to include, and what steps to take?
— Question 4 —
How do we organize roles & responsibilities…knowing that raising the bar on accountability, ownership, entrepreneurship is often the dominant business mantra?
— Question 5 —
How can we renew and re-energize our meeting habits (and coordination mechanisms)? How can we become more inclusive, demonstrate bravery, and build ‘traction’ in the business?

“Managers frequently change organizational structures and roles. But let's face it... few have the language, skills and insights to do it in a professional and risk-covered way.”
