Your Organization Structure – Need a Better One?

A typical organizational chart, like the ones found in many companies in the world is shown here; showing only titles. What do these words even mean in terms of actual responsibility?

Organization charts and fancy titles count for next to nothing.” – Colin Powell (Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff: 1989-93 )

Thank you Mr. Powell. We couldn’t agree more. An organizational chart filled with meaningless names serves as nothing more than an office decoration.

Having names on a flow chart tells the employees very little about what is going on in your organization.  Organization charts are important because they display a chain of command.  But how many staff really know the structure of their business?  Does management post or publish the organization chart?

What if an organization board was posted around the office with details?  Details such as…..

  • Names
  • Titles
  • Responsibilities
  • Performance Measures

Our clients that require more productivity are really look for organization most of the time and part of our consulting solution is to implement and train on our Organization Chart.  The results are huge.  We deliver increased performance by as much as 25%.
