How accountable is your organisation?
Brian covered the origins of his approach and detailed his view of organisation design, which is based on looking at accountability, the optimal number of levels in an organisation, spans of control and his concept of DMA.
Some examples of ‘problems’ and tell-tale signs of over-layering and over-manning. Waste in organisations is more than the cost of hiring too many people – it’s a block to communications and leads to delays, clutter and more work.
An outline of where his approach has made improvements and the results obtained.

Post Meeting Notes - The Agile Dashboard
On 24th July CRF and PARC members gathered for The Agile Dashboard: Designing Agility Into Your Company. “If the keyword for the 20th century was ‘speed’, the keyword for the 21st century is ‘agility’.” So said Professor Joe Perfetti, our speaker for this session. That was before the coronavirus outbreak re-wrote the rules and re-ordered the business world. His statement is now more apposite than ever. Entire sectors have been devastated. Business leaders are now surveying the world after the lockdown with no idea of what business-as-usual will look like or even whether the very idea has now become outdated. Of one thing we can be sure, though, businesses will have to adapt and change fast.Read Post Meeting Review

IMD Business School - Unlocking Agility through Purpose and Impact
Agile organisations are both stable and dynamic. Purpose brings stability, a critical attribute to flexibility. Purpose enables company-wide capability to pivot away from static siloed business models into new sources of value. Currently, transformation has become the status quo. From digital, to customer-centric or sustainable business models, change is the order of the day. Agile businesses react quickly when challenged and can transform and adapt. Purpose instils leadership clarity and material strategic priorities that drive business to act.View Presentation
