Most of us all but ignore organization design. We join a company in a specific role, hired to do a specific thing, and don't ever really think about how (or why) the company leaders decided they needed that particular thing done.
As we travel "up" through the business, however, we start to notice that certain things have a lot to do with how the company is structured. We learn that putting the right people in the right spots is an enormous part of success. We witness ideas that could provide huge value be killed by a structure of bureaucracy. We see potential collaborations squelched because of hierarchies and power struggles.
In order to build a healthy organization, we must rethink the way we structure.
By providing a different kind of org chart, we can help people instantly connect their job to the value they create in the organization, while at the same time generate more autonomy and entrepreneurial energy.
Business structures haven't been updated since the industrial age, but the world has changed dramatically. Isn't it time for our organization design to do the same?
