Organizational Design

Organizational Design    

Most organizations are designed to achieve the results that they are getting. When the results aren’t what you want, organizational design and structure warrant a review. 

Structure is about design. Structure answers the question: “Who is responsible for what?”  Structure is more than boxes in an organization chart. Structure is the relationship among people in an organization regarding the tasks they are responsible for doing. We use participative design methods to engage people at all levels in the organization in changing their structure to a team-based workplace that is more effective, productive and satisfying.

People in Charge uses participative design methods for organizations doing all kinds of work: call centers, manufacturing, sales and marketing, banking, government agencies, engineering, court systems, software developing, training and development, human resources, and nonprofits. We have helped redesign whole organizations, divisions and departments, small units, and project teams.
