Most government agencies are organized in hierarchical silos containing multiple layers of management. The 21st century workforce requires lean, better-connected, and more agile organizational structures that improve communication and coordination, increase efficiency and effectiveness, support innovation and faster decision-making, and provide a better foundation for staff development, learning, and empowerment.
We can help government leaders to build lean, agile and better-connected organizations that better support mission requirements in the following ways:
- Create a vision for improving organizational structures.
- With input from staff, HR, and organization leaders, develop organizational options, and identify tools for evaluating and selecting options that align with the vision.
- Create new structures that reduce redundancy and provide better connectivity, agility, and synergy between functions.
- Obtain input from customers and internal/external stakeholders.
- Develop a timeline for implementing or standing-up the new structures.
- Create the necessary documentation for supporting reorganization and obtaining approval.
- Define positions, develop job descriptions, and create performance plans.
- Develop staffing plans and tools for realigning employees or filling new positions.
- Remove potential obstacles, and provide the necessary tools to support change.
- Communicate with staff, managers, and organization leaders throughout the change process.
