ORGANIZATIONAL DESIGN

 

There are many situations that require organizations to adapt, change, or transform in order to not only survive - but thrive in a new context. Today, organizations must consistently adapt to overcome challenges in effectivness, engage their people in generating solutions and design work environments that will optimize individual and organizational potential, while also retaining top talent.  

We can help by diagnosing organization and decision effectiveness. We do that through our Organizational Health & Decision Health Audits. 

Whenever organizations restructure a line of business, service or product, change occurs. New competencies, structure, ways of thinking about the work, and communication patterns are needed. To stay ahead of the competition, companies need to be agile and learn to manage change effectively - implementing new practices, policies, systems, culture, business models and structures to meet shifting conditions and emergent needs.

S6 Partners can help you re-design functions, competencies and performance metrics to inspire and engage employees. We can also help you clearly communicate the organization's core values and manage the emotional side of change.
