CRF Survey Slide Pack: Designing Adaptable Organisations

Today’s organisations exist in a context of rapid and continuous change, digital disruption, and complexity. The key challenge for organisation designers in this context is to balance the organisation’s core tension between agility and scale.

CRF’s 2018 research report, Designing Adaptable Organisations for Tomorrow’s Challenges, explores these issues. We find that organisations’ ability to apply organisation design insights and best practice in order to adapt and remain competitive is underdeveloped.

Our research included a survey that assessed the current pace of change and redesign in organisations, organisational capability for design and for digital, and other challenges related to organisation design, such as credibility with leadership. Access this document to learn more about the survey results and to use the data in your own work.

Designing Adaptable Organisations for Tomorrow's Challenges

The context for organisations today is characterised by complexity, rapid technological advances, and digital disruption. Organisations are experiencing fundamental shifts in their business models and have to constantly reinvent themselves in order to remain competitive. Indeed, 89% of respondents to our survey said their organisation had either recently reorganised or had a reorganisation underway. This research report reviews the latest thinking in organisational design, exploring how organisations are seeking to resolve a core tension: how to balance the need for agility and responsiveness to customer needs while achieving the benefits of operating at a global scale.
