Organisational design

Creating the foundation for your people to deliver at their best

Fast-evolving businesses often demand rapid innovation in their organisational structures. Without appropriate organisational design, innovation and growth can be stifled by issues such as unclear roles and a lack of necessary resources. We work with companies to get the best out of their talent and resources.

Our approach

It is important for companies to structure themselves to keep up with the pace of change, and to make the most of the people they employ. Having the right resources and skill sets in the right places will help ensure your company can meet its business objectives.

We aim to be your partner from the start: supporting your first fact-finding sessions and conducting a frank assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of your current operating model. Organisational structure must be aligned to your business strategy and purpose, as well as the strategies and operating models of any individual business units. Only after these are understood can leaders begin to design their optimal organisational structure.

We can assist throughout the entire process, executing on design through to detailed implementation. We can also complement organisational design with a talent and culture audit and follow-up actions to help an organisation continue its journey of implementing a structure that works for today and into the future. We help organisations put the right people into the right places in the new structure and address skills shortfalls that may challenge the success of the new operating model.

In addition to helping larger, commercial corporations, our deep understanding of organisational design has been distilled into Optimize, our proprietary diagnostics and benchmarking platform, which helps privately owned businesses drive long-term value. Our organisational design expertise can also be deployed in the public sector, where our locally rooted teams have a keen understanding of the special factors at play in government.
