Strong organisational design is a key factor in great performance. Create the right set-up and environment for your company and your people will consistently perform at their best.
Done well, organisation design can enhance business performance by aligning a business' structure and people to its strategy. Coaching For Change helps our clients implement effective organisation design to improve their long term success.
Organisational design is not about playing around with an org chart and putting names in boxes. It is about being revolutionary, getting a breakthrough in performance you never thought possible. Thinking functions and value rather than department and people.
We help clients re-shape their organisation to drive out waste and improve performance. We match up value stream with functions using our unique, robust and logical methodology. This challenges the culture and traditional thinking by focusing on "functional value", in other words, what is the total cost of our function and how does it support the end to end value stream?

We will review your organisational structure and resources to see how well geared they are towards delivering what you need to achieve, either for your current operation or if you’re looking to acquire or grow.
Once we have reviewed everything with you, we will help you define the right organisational design to best suit your overall business goals and strategy, how it will influence your culture, people and business, and what is needed to get everything in place.
We will guide you through the business change and help you determine which parts of the organisational plan to focus on and implement first (e.g. structure, systems and processes, management practices, staff competencies and performance, training needs) – so that your business can start delivering better results.
Organisational change and the fear of the unknown often unnerve staff, so keeping everyone informed and onside is crucial to achieving a good outcome. We’ll help keep people in the loop throughout the process, make complex legislation more user-friendly and ensure that the process runs smoothly.
