Organizational Effectiveness

Organizational effectiveness in action

So, the board just approved your new strategy, but you have yet to see any real traction. Or maybe the company’s year-old digital transformation is not progressing as planned. This may be because your organization is hindering, rather than supporting, your strategy.

For strategic change to be successful, it is necessary to consider its impact across the full breadth of the organization. Leadership, capabilities, structural interfaces, decision-making and talent management must be designed to enable strategy in an integrated manner. At the same time, ensuring your organization has the capacity for change is critical to making the transformation last.
