Organisational design is about ensuring that the structures, processes, culture and people are all ‘fit for purpose’ and are aligned with the organisation’s mission, values and strategic objectives. Achieving the right balance between these components is critical if the organisation is to build and sustain long term success.
In particular, given that people-related costs are often one of the largest cost elements, it is important that the organisation is structured efficiently. Each organisational ‘level’ needs to add demonstrable value and there should be clarity and transparency regarding the expectations of different levels and roles within the organisation structure.
