Summary
"Organizational design practitioners face challenges gathering data to help focus and implement design, understanding the complex nature of organizations, and communicating and sustaining change over a long period of time. Data-driven Organization Design seeks to overcome these challenges, showing how to collect meaningful data and link it to business performance data. Through the use of case studies, practical tips, and sample exercises, the book explains how to: --Map an organization by creating and connecting hierarchies and taxonomies --Link ad-hoc organizational processes to ongoing workforce planning --Apply new analytical approaches to project planning and management, risk management, and competencies "--
"Data is changing the nature of competition. Making sense of it is tough. Taking advantage of it is tougher. There is a business opportunity for organizations to use data and analytics to transform business performance. Organizations are by their nature complex. They are a constantly evolving system made up of objectives, processes designed to meet those objectives, people with skills and behaviours to do the work required, and all of this organised in a governance structure. It is dynamic, fluid and constantly moving over time. Using data and analytics you can connect all the elements of the system to design an environment for people to perform; an organization which has the right people, in the right place, doing the right things, at the right time. For only when everyone performs to their potential, do organizations have a hope of getting and sustaining a competitive edge. This book provides a practical framework for HR and Organization design practitioners to build a baseline of data, set objectives, carry out fixed and dynamic process design, map competencies, and right-size the organization. It shows how to collect the right data, present it meaningfully and ask the right questions of it. Whether looking to implement a long term transformation, large redesign, or a one off small scale project, this book will show you how to make the most of your organizational data and analytics to drive business performance"--
