Command of the Organization


Ever wonder why some management books deeply resonate with one leader, and yet appear to be nonsense to someone else?  

It turns out that when it comes to organization design, one size does NOT fit all.  

Some leaders personally claim and retain effectively all decision-making authority.  Some empower their employees with their authority, effectively “lending” their authority.  Still others, albeit a small but growing minority of leaders, insist that authority resides with their employees right from the start.   



This program matches the skills and styles of a leadership team to the characteristics of appropriate organizational structure and processes. It then designs an implementation plan for the identified changes that will increase the effectiveness of the organization given how the leadership team sees the world. With everyone in the organization operating from the same playbook, company accomplishments accelerate.

This comprehensive program catalogs the predispositions and aspirations of the leadership, and then audits the organization for operational improvements across departments and disciplines.  Some topics we typically map to the dispositions of the leadership include:
