Realising the impact of organisation design: Ten questions for business leaders

The findings concluded the following:

  • Most organisation design projects proceed to the design phase with very limited analytical work. The analytics that do take place are often based on incomplete or very high-level data sets
  • Most design projects don’t go far enough in addressing real organisational or structural issues
  • In more than 60 percent of cases, these important projects are left up to middle management to design and implement. There’s too little sponsorship, oversight or involvement from senior executives
  • Often, businesses embark on organisation design projects in search of benefits they can’t achieve through organization design alone—or even at all.
