We work with leaders of successful companies to build organizations capable of executing on complex, global growth strategies.

Organization design decisions are a leader’s responsibility.  Our goal is to ensure our clients have considered a full range of viable options, understand the implications of each alternative, and are confident they are making a well-considered choice.

We believe this is best done by involving a broad slice of the organization in both the assessment and option generation phases.  We find that engaging a wide variety of views results in a better set of options, and that involvement builds commitment to the design decisions and the change process.

Organization design is rapidly becoming a core and expected offering for Business Leaders & HR. In order to deliver this sophisticated work effectively, the function needs a common methodology and toolkit that is shared by skilled business partners in the field and specialists in the center, working together to deliver high-value decision support.

Organization Design Architect Certification Training: An Essential Capability Building training workshop that provides a foundation in conceptual frameworks, analytical tools, and consulting skills in a highly practical and application‐based three‐day program.
