Lack of ability to deliver on strategy and goalsThe inability to deliver on strategy and goals is one of the most common challenges facing companies today. The root cause is often the inability of all parts of the organization to join forces and align towards common goals, objectives, and deliveries. A common framework for steering and governing what the company's most important short- and long-term focus areas are, can create the alignment needed to succeed.
Unclarity of mandate and where decisions are madeOrganizational charts of a line or matrix set-up may look good on paper, but in reality, they can cause confusion and require too many meetings to align responsibilities. By aligning our organizational setup with value delivery and distributed mandate, we can secure a faster decision process.
Constant prioritization conflictsMany companies are stuck in traditional organizational structures and silos, hindering their ability to prioritize and join forces around strategic objectives. A network of teams, self-organizing, will maximize value creation.
Lack of customer centricityCustomer centricity is a popular strategy for companies, but few truly follow their customers' needs. To succeed, you must have the capability to stay close to your customers, involve them in decision-making, and act on their feedback.
Learning & innovation is not in focusInnovation is crucial for all companies, but a centralized hub may not be enough. To capture and foster new ideas across the organization, we need a test-and-learn approach and must acknowledge mistakes as learning opportunities.
Employee engagement and motivation is lowEmployees feel disengaged when they lack control over workload and decisions affecting their outcome. Self-organizing teams with autonomy and clear mission can significantly increase employee engagement.
