Principles of Organizational Design and Optimization
The Leadership Challenge
Building an optimized organization is a leadership challenge that extends beyond human resources. Implementing an optimization program is disruptive and often forces employees to act in new, uncomfortable ways—focusing on open knowledge sharing, transparent accountability, and widespread collaboration, all of which require personal vulnerability and, thus, discomfort.
Where successful, however, organizational optimization programs have the potential for transformative short—and long—term rewards, including driving out inefficiency and ineffectiveness, improved margins, and improved customer experiences. Once the new optimized culture takes root, the system often becomes self-sustaining, self-policing, and self-propagating, paying dividends for years to come.
